    Relaxing stay. Hostel is set amongst tropical gardens and the staff are friendly and welcoming.

    Beautiful place! Our room was fantastic and lovely decorated. The grounds were amazing with the wildlife there, and having a bar and bistro on site makes for a great stay! Staff were super friendly and really helpful

    Very comfortable hostel in a nice setting.

    This hostel is a mix of resort, camping and hostel. This put some stress on the staff as they seemed focused on the bar and restaurant more than hostel kitchen. Little effort on self catering and had to make 10$ deposit to get a pot. Recycling efforts seemed lacking although when requested we were offered facilities in restaurant kitchen. Campers apparently steal kitchen utensils thus others suffer.

    The tranquil natural environment, birdsong and wild life enhance the ambience. Having a great menu with some meals available all day was terrific. As I was without a car it made my time so relaxing. It would be great though to have courtesy bus do a specific shop run or two daily (small charge?) as well as pick up-drop off of travellers...

    Unfortunately a sub-standard YHA experience. The kitchen is under equipped, the wifi and internet never worked, mistakes were made with our booking, and our room didn't have a closeable solid door (just a screen) so we frequently had the smell of cigarette smoke drift in from outside. The bike rental was great, but didn't make up for the sub-par experience. Not recommended.

    Customer Reviews on

    YHA believes that you should be given a true picture of what other guests have to say about our hostels. That's why when you make a booking on, you will be invited by email to rate your hostel stay upon checkout. These ratings are then published, unedited, whether you give the hostel a good or bad review. Average ratings are calculated based on the last 50 customer submissions.

    We review these ratings daily, and publish any comments, images and tips provided. We don't edit your comments and will publish them whether they are good or bad. However, there are a few instances where we will not publish the comments online:

    Inappropriate or offensive comments

    Any inappropriate and/or offensive comments won't be published.

    Inappropriate or offensive comments include, but are not limited to, personal harassment or discrediting of YHA staff, hate speech, sexually explicit language or swearing.

    Unsubstantiated or incorrect claims

    Hostels will have the right to have negative comments removed if they can prove that claims are unsubstantiated or incorrect. YHA Australia will investigate the claim prior to publishing online. Examples where we have not published a comment for this reason are mostly due to guests mixing up different hostels they had booked.

    Comments including staff names

    Reviews that feature full staff names will not be published, whether in relation to a positive or negative comment. First names of staff will be published in positive comments only.

    If a negative comment is made, all reference to a particular staff member will be removed.

    Changed circumstances in hostels

    If there have been any major changes such as hostel renovations, new management/owners, and we believe the previous ratings are no longer relevant, YHA will remove all submissions and the rating calculations will commence from zero.

    Please note: YHA Australia will not enter into correspondence with the reviewer whether a comment is suitable or not.
