Went to pick fruit for three months, stayed for five. Hands down the best hostel on the east coast. Best five months in Aus. BY FAR the best place to do fruit picking. Great vibe in the hostel, plenty to do. Cant recommend the place highly enough. Definitely a place for backpackers that are partial to a drink or seven....

Room Tip: For partying, stay on the 3rd floor in the dorm building....

So we arrived with our friend from New Zealand and first thoughts were "great location" then we saw the rooms, cheap yes but also nasty. Not clean and with a tiny fan in the corner extremely hot. Atmosphere seemed okay however receptionist was far more interested in her skype date she was having then actually checking us in. For a 3 night stay we were trying to remain positive until the last night when 2 of us had gone out and one stayed back to go to bed. Around 11pm she vaugley heard someone knocking on the door but though it must be the wrong room and as she was alone in the room didnt feel safe to open the door. Anyway before she knew it the door flew open with 2 shirtless men standing there. They let themselves in and then realised somebody was in there. They then claimed to be security checking the room as they had been told we had more people there than should be. What were they doing letting themselve into our room when they thought no body was in there. Where the staff intending to steal our valuables?? Is it appropriate at that time of night to be half dressed letting your selves into a young ladies room. I THINK NOT!!!! Outraged we left the next day and promptly cancelled the weeks stay we had booked previously for over Christmas. Stay at your own risk people...dodgy is an understatment.

Stayed in the backpackers for 2 weeks during my first days of farm. Good location with busses and greyhound and close to the beach. Good service and always a good feeling in the air,
. A very relaxed place to spend your days at with swimming pool and pool table if you don't want to go to any of the activities. The staff is always on top and always in the game.
All in all a very good temporary home with nice friends and good accommodation.

Cheers max

I've been to many hostels Oz, but this hostel is sick!!
Free breakfast, pool, clean rooms and the staff is young and very friendly!
You get connected to different farms asap if you wanna do your farm work in oz.
It's fun! ;)

The staff are very welcoming, and the place stays clean. I felt very much at home when hanging out in the common area due to the friendly people and staff. Keep up the good work. Love the free breakfast!
