Because there are only ten beds it is easy to relate to the other guests and share experiences compared to the hundred and plenty bed hostels in the big cities where many guests seem reluctant to talk to you.

nice to stay somewhere small, and it was a good base for trips to Wilsons Promontory

A beautiful miners cottage near the centre of Foster in Gippsland. Lovely bush back-yard. A perfect place to stay after riding the rail trail from Leongatha.
