    A 3 bedroom house turned into a hostel. Cosy and comfy :-) Great base for exploring Wilson Promontory National Park as an alternative to staying in Tidal River.

    A very small hostel suitable for those visiting South Gippsland including Wilsons Promontory. Has all the usual facilities.

    We were extremely lucky as we got a free upgrade from a room with a double bed to a small apartment next door. It was great!!

    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
