Stayed in this hostel as part of a group tour. On leaving the bus we were basically warned to take the host’s humor with a pinch of salt. “Greeted” by the owner Bumpy and within the first 20 mins of arriving at the hostel we were ordered into the kitchen and taught how to clean up after ourselves. Bumpy continued to show us around the grounds all the while being condescending and brash. Throughout our stay Bumpy ordered me to get off my phone (none of his business), he walked into the female toilets while we were in the shower (creep) and most annoying of all kept reminding us he was Irish but couldn’t take the banter when challenged about his “Irish heritage”(we’re Irish). Overall I would save yourself the headache and not stay here.

Awesome place to stay! You better have some humour because Bumpy (owner) is a funny, humorous, generous, loving and caring guy. 2 of us got a dorm room on Christmas holiday season and it was great. We were planning to camp but the weather turned and we needed shelter. Book a night or couple here, people are friendly and he had great rates for us. Also you can get discount on the Hertiage cruise - Gordon river if you book through Bumpy!

I have done a lot of hostels, campings, motels, etc. This place is the BEST, nothing less. The owner Bumpy welcomes you in his "home" in the best way possible, with humor and kindness. He upgraded me without me asking, just because. He understands what it means to travel backpacking. He made me feel welcome. Room, toilets, showers, kitchen...everything was super clean. The bed was comfy with 2 blankets to keep me warm and clean sheets. I wish I could have stayed a few more nights! I highly recommand this place.

I have visited many places around the world and hundreds of luxury hotels and motels. This place is different to any of it all together! Owner welcomes you like a family, everyone there is family and you are at home! Thank you Bumpy! Best memories!

I travelled on a tour of Tassie and we stayed here for 2 nights. I was lucky enough to get a cabin to myself and it was one of the best cabins I've ever stayed in! Beautiful, clean and quiet. Shared bathrooms were clean and modern. They have 2 kitchens/common areas and a BBQ area surrounded by a large garden complete with platypuses in the creek. Good location, a short stroll to shops/beach. It definitely felt like a retreat!
