If you are looking for stylish accommodation then this isn't for you. If you are looking for basic accommodation in a bush setting, then this is the place for you. There's no staff on site so you'll have to book online and self check-in. I spoke to the owner a couple of times and he was friendly and helpful.  It's got basic dorm style rooms with no heating or cooling (my room did have a portable fan). I had a room with a TV and ensuite bathroom so didn't use communal bathroom or lounge area. The communal lounge area had a TV, DVD player and a selection of DVD's. There were also a few books and kids board games. Pool table and table tennis table. Also an arcade game, (money required) The shared kitchen is a converted shipping container which is adequate for cooking meals. Depending on what you like to do,  there are lots of places to visit in the hills area and are a large selection of shops and cafés. Overall I thought it was a quite and relaxing stay.

We spent a night in the double room with the ‘shared’ bathroom. We suspect this place may have been an old scout or school camp. The rooms are more ‘dorms‘ than nice ‘Retreat’ rooms. There’s no heating or cooling, except for a fan. It was freezing overnight and the basin in the toilet was so tiny we could hardly wash our hands in it. The whole place was filthy. It doesn’t look like it gets cleaned. If it does, it’s not often. I spilt water and wiped it up with toilet paper, which was then brown with dirt from the floor. My feet were dirty after spending time in the room barefoot. The ‘recreation’ room had lots of couches and tables and apart from a Connect 4 kids game, and a dart board with 2 darts, there was nothing to do in this space. Oh, there was a tv. We didn’t use the shared shower facilities as they were disgusting. The floors, basin and toilets were all visibly dirty. They advertise having a coffee machine on one site, a B&B on their Facebook Page and on this site they even claim to have a coffee shop! Depending where you look they, variously describe themselves as a retreat complete with a permaculture garden, a B&B, and a resort. It is none of these things. I’ve stayed at better backpacker accommodation. There were NO staff there at all, even though their website says their chefs are there to cook for you at any time. It was self check in. The coffee pod machine was filthy and you were expected to have brought your own pods ??? There were no ‘condiments’ in the shared kitchen at all and our ‘garden view’ was the corrugated iron roof top of the shower block. In the room there was a sign saying ‘please open the top windows during the day to ventilate your room’. However, my partner, who is 6ft 5in couldn’t reach the lever to open the windows. It was also NOT Covid compliant at all. No hand sanitiser, no signs - nothing. I mean they don’t even clean before guests arrive so why would they be Covid compliant. Do not recommend staying here at all.

This property is not what is listed on TripAdvisor or airbnb. We stayed here a few weeks back and were promised ‘exclusive access’ to the property only to find the kitchen off limits as it being used by a cooking crew. These guys were in and out of our communal living area the whole time, even stopping in to use the toilets and smoke at 2am. The host was hostile and evasive, doing nothing to resolve the issue. He was clearly ‘double dipping’ by leasing the property to two separate parties without telling us. He even changed the listing description during our stay. Don’t trust him or the listing.

Stayed with the family over the weekend Accomodation is cheap and the rooms are clean and tidy. Staff are fantastic, helpful and courteous. Rooms are basic but great facilities. Take a walk down the bottom. There’s fruit trees, kangaroos, koalas and beautiful forests. Not far from all the main towns in the Adelaide Hills. Great stop over spot but a couple of days is needed to really relax by the fire and get into the spirit. Going again soon.
