The hostel is a great place to meet up with other travellers. You can take time out to relax and enjoy the trees, gardens and birds, or get active bushwalking, swimming, cycling, surfing, etc. We offer a range of sleeping options.

  • twin room or converted caravan for 2 people
  • double bed in a converted caravan

All beds are supplied with pillows, bed linen and doonas. Towels can be hired for a fee.

Your bed cost includes use of shared toilet and shower facilities, the hostel’s spacious kitchen (with free tea and coffee) and lounge/ dining area (internet or Wi-Fi plus TV/video / DVD available), plus its large outdoor covered verandah.
