Admittedly this hostel does look a touch dingy from the outside, but once inside it's everything that I was hoping the hostelling experience in Oz to be.
The staff are friendly, the rooms are ok but cleaned well every day but for a solo backpacker like me, the evenings are what makes it. Everyone was welcoming, there are nights out every night with free/cheap drink offers in town. There isn't a bar but there is a bottle shop 2 mins walk away and everyone just drinks together in the area by the pool anyway. Only 10 mins walk from town and under 2 mins from the beach so a great location. Also the kitchen is always clean and the social room is always busy, with a large selection of DVDs to watch and a link to the TV in the dorm so you can watch them there too.
If you're travelling solo or in a small group, I'd highly recommend this place if your in Surfers!More
