Thanks so much for your kind words, it really does mean a lot to us all. The use of all the free equipment really is something special! The swimming pool is a welcoming area too when the weather is as hot as it's been. We are pleased you found the hostel so clean too. Safe travels and welcome back anytime!

Was only supposed to stay two nights, ended up staying 6. Lovely staff, owners are so nice and helpful. Toilets and showers are the cleanest of all the hostels I've stayed. There's a pool, free or cheap activities, beer pong night. Everyone is social. Really good atmosphere! Would highly recommend.

Felt like home for two days. Big room for 8 beds, clean communal bathrooms. Lovely staff. Hired some paddle boards for no extra charge and went across the road to the river. 15min walk to jetty or grocery store. Kitchen was a little small but had everything you could need.
