Being a small hostel, guests can meet and socialise easily. It’s famous for free ice cream provided at 9pm most nights, gathering guests together. 

    This cosy backpacker accommodation makes a great base to explore Mount Warning, National Parks, rainforest, and waterfalls. Experience a typical Aussie community, see the murals and graffiti wall, swim or kayak the peaceful Tweed River.

    The walking track at Mt Warning is now open again to the public: Book our specials for hostel package including transport out to the start of the walk.

    • A bit out of the way compared to many other hostels but the scenery and atmosphere makes up for it. This place makes for a lovely few days of relaxing and then mountain climbing.

    • A brilliant little hostel in a great location. Tassie, the hostel owner, has taken alot of effort in providing useful information to all visitors and making the place special. It is unique and quirky hostel with a very homely feel. P.s the bed in the double room (no3) was very confortable.
