    • What a great little touch of paradise! Secluded, user friendly, great mix of clients in which to mingle and the exotic location. This place is a MUST if you're attracted to national parks and wildlife in your sights. Truly the outdoor-adventurer styled tourist's delight.

    • If you like wallabies by the doorstep, lovely views of Pittwater and the bush, interesting bushwalks and rock formations, a friendly fireplace to return to, clean facilities and meeting nice guests, then you'll enjoy this yha. Next time I'll remember to bring my wine glasses for an ideal dinner!

    • Wonderful views, plenty of wildlife and information about it. Very clean, great atmosphere. Quiet and amenable to meeting people and chatting because there is no TV! Helpful, friendly staff.

    • This is not like staying in a hostel, more like going to stay with your very lovely relatives who really want you to have an amazing time. The staff were great and couldn't do enough for me. Arriving on my bike, they are keen cyclists themselves and were able to recommend to me a beautiful cycle home. A wallaby with a Joey in her pouch sat next to me whilst I ate my breakfast - magical.

    • 5 of us were there for the second time. Its' environmentally friendly setting is so precious and our hosts Sarah and Michael were so friendly and professional. We highly recommend this place for families, but not for those with small kids. Perhaps, it is appropriate for families with kids at primary school age+.

    • This is a beautiful hostel when you want to be away from the frenzied city lifestyle. The hostel is surrounded by National Park and you are surrounded by nature and native animals. If you like bars, night clubs and discos this is definitely not the place for you. This is a place to slow down, relax and be at peace with yourself and your surroundings.
