    • Beautifully-located hostel, where everything had been thought of - yet not oppressively 'institutional' in feel, as some hostels unfortunately are. Old-fashioned hostelling spirit prevailed; if that's what you are looking for (we were) this hostel is very strongly recommended.

    • Fantastic location. I stay in YHA's, motel, hotels every week and this one is fantastic, just my speed, a house in the middle of the bush, with bush views from each room. For folk that live in Sydney, I'd really recommend this place as a place to come, play some board games infront of the open fire, drink some wine and unwind.

    • Great view from the hostel. Small hostel holding a maximum of 15. The open fire heats the whole hostel. Will definitely go back.
