A really nice hostel/motel with nice and clean rooms, parking, a bar and the bottleshop as a neighbour. Great courtyard where you can have fun, play drinkinggames and chill with your hostelfriends. Nice Beach just behind building and good staff! Highly recommended

I came here in June to do farm work. We were told that there was work but we didn't get farm work for 6 weeks. We contemplated moving on somewhere else but decided to stick it out in the hope that we would get work soon. The hostel was very quiet when we first arrived, but got very busy around... More

A group of friends and I booked into a 4 bed room with en suite at the Hoey Moey on our way to Falls Festival at the end of last year The room was basic, but reasonably comfortable - not worth $280 a night for what it was.
