Jake, the owner, is very helpful and friendly and showed us to a small but nice double room. It can get a little bit noisy because it the toilets and showers are right outside but you soon get used to it. There is also a kitchen outside another adjoining door and a lounge but Jake warns everyone that this lounge is right by the dorms and bedrooms so if you want to keep talking after 10pm you must go downstairs to the other lounge.
All the equipment is clean, kitchens are clean and the whole place is very friendly and has a nice vibe to it. Free bike hire, wireless internet access and one of the least expensive we found with 300mb or 3 day access for $10.
Great place, would definitely stay here again.

Clean facilities, good parking, quiet and central, only personal problem was queue for laundry facilities taking it past the noise curfew resulting in a lot of wet clothes with no access to a dryer!

Lovely hostel, clean, tidy and a warm friendly atmosphere. Helpful staff gave a great intro to the area including all the local shops and their hours/prices and details for the ferry. Room was comfortable, and bathrooms were clean and plentiful. Can't recommend it highly enough!

This hostel was great, even though we stayed out of season, it was perfect for a few days rest. It has three kitchens and two large lounges with a lovely warm fire and a friendly atmosphere. Beds and bathrooms are clean and well maintained. Nice views from the balcony across the bay of islands and free bikes to use. No complaints.
