Certificate of Excellence
At this small owner-operated hostel you can be assured of high standards of cleanliness, great communal kitchen facilities and a warm welcome. Stand-out features include ocean views and native bird themed artwork throughout, giving this hostel an ambiance of home. We look forward to meeting you so come and relax and enjoy the sunsets, swim in the local lakes, view the amazing free Glow Worm Dell, where little insects appear like stars every night among the trees. This summer is forecast to be warm and dry so come and enjoy the great outdoors!
