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.... More

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!

We stayed there for one night and were very happy with this backpacker hostel. The host was very helpful and gave us recommendations for places to eat and things to do. The rooms have enough space, the bed sheets and so on are fresh and clean and the mattress was also wonderful to sleep on. Showers and toilets are cleaned... More

Adequate place to stay for the night. Everything that you'd expect from a backpacking hostel. The range of dorm sizes (6,8,16) was good. My only reservation was the woman at the reception who wasn't helpful or friendly at all. She was also very controlling of the wifi and the kitchen equipment.
