    • A nice and cheap place to stay in an otherwise expensive tourist resort. The facilities were basic but adequate.

    • This hostel in the outback is the best hostel I've been! Stay in the yha, good value for money and more comfortable than in tents

    • I've already recommended to people - great facilities! The pool was a treat, as was the bar inc pool tables for evening relaxing. The dorms were great - really loved the design which meant each section of four dorm beds had their own door to enter by (we were a group of four women) and it just made for a more private, quiet dorm room experience.
