We stayed here 4 nights and loved it.
It is exceptionally quiet, a bit of a walk (10 mins) from the small town centre, but very very close to a beautiful beach and wonderful selection of walks. We walked along the beach on a walk recommended by the owner and saw kangaroos, and a huge sting ray.
There is a nice kitchen, a small tv lounge, and a table tennis table upstairs.
Excellent value for money (we had a double room)
There was never more than 5 or 6 people staying when we were there. I did not have a car and the walk in to town was not too far for me, though if you have very heavy bags it might be difficult. The only downside was that the hostel makes you check out and leave the building at 10 am. Other hostels either let you hang around the kitchen for free for a few hours (if you have an afternoon bus) or let you pay a certain amount to do so. This place offered neither option, which would be annoying if you have an early afternoon bus.Otherwise very nice if you are looking for a quiet relaxing place to stay.
