    • Had a wonderful stay here with my wife - the setting is amazing and reminded us of the YHA in Punakaiki in New Zealand.

    • It was good, bit cold so hard to say how the atmosphere is when it's a bit hotter. It looked good though, clean room and very friendly staff!

    • The owners are super friendly and caring. Beautiful surrounds, location on the bus route, comfy beds, well equipped kitchen, great TV/lounge room, good number of bathrooms, overall chilled and friendly atmosphere. A great place to stay!

    • A very unique hostel set in the middle of the bush but very close to local amenities. This is a great place to stay if you want to feel close to nature. A local kookaburra comes to the kitchen area to watch you eat breakfast! Amazing and beautiful Tomaree Head is just 10 mins away by car, as are many stunning beaches. Truly brilliant hostel, definitely one of the best we have stayed in.
