We arrived late and left in the morning so didn't spend much time there, but I had no complaints. Things were kept clean and organized. Although it was a dorm room with other people,everyone was quiet over night and we had a good quiet sleep, which is sometimes difficult in a shared dorm room. There was a bug eating area...

Enjoyed a lovely four nights here recently and left feeling very relaxed. Friendly staff, large common areas and a kitchen and bathroom that are meticulously cleaned every morning. Five minutes walk to the beach and cafes. Oh and free WiFi too!

This could be such a good hostel, if the managers were able to make the effort. Attitudes were at times deeply unfriendly, which was intimidating to friends visiting from Europe especially to experience this wonderful part of the world. Facilities very out-dated, only three showers per gender for the many guests sharing a bathroom, strict rules forbidding any BYO alcohol...

This place is not worth it for the double rooms. Rooms open onto an enclosed verandah full of blow flies, very basic with uncomfortable beds and paper thin walls. Better off going to an Airbnb or motel.

I stayed here on my roadtrip from Melbourne to Adelaide. The room was quiet and the lounge is spacious and welcoming; with big screens, board games, tables to eat and sofas to relax. Free coffee and tea. The toilets were very clean and well-mantained. Haven't booked activities or equipment, but seems to have a choice of surf options for rent....

We were staying in YHAs during most of our Australian roadtrips and this hostel is just as good as those outstanding hostels. Friendly owner, nice big clean rooms with a good kitchen. A very big cosy lounge area with free internet makes you feel right at home!
