This hostel was nice, good air con, comfy beds and nice en suit toilet shower area. However, the rooms were a bit small for 8 people. It has a nice pool area but it's very chilled, not a party place if that's what you're after. Also wifi is not accessible in rooms at all, only reception. The koala sanctuary is...

Absolutely loved it here! Accommodation has just undergone renovation and it's lovely! Great beds, proper shower and toilets in our room! Lovely communal area with comfy beanbags to chill on, good free wifi, a bar selling some food as well, tables, a brilliant pool that as shallow it's you can sunbathe in, hammocks and a good kitchen cooking area too....

This is a chill place in a chill place. Got so relaxed. Finished two books, got a tan. Walking distance from the beach and some eateries. Wildlife all over. Very comfortable bungalow type rooms. Activities in the evening.

Seriously, if you don't like bugs do not stay here!! I stayed in one of the smaller bungalows and checked into a dorm room after two nights because they were driving me crazy! First of all there are ants crawling everywhere (even in the dorms). The small bungalows are open on each side with just a fly screen instead of...

This run-down 2-star backpacker resort is managed by sone of the rudest females you will meet on your travels. The frozen pizza menu is also underwhelming. But what really sets this place apart is its cruel exploitation of koalas held captive clinging to 2-metre high fake trees so this place can profit from you having your photograph taken hugging them....

The staff at the Koala Village conduct a fun, interactive tour which is popular with backpackers in particular. Visitors can hold different reptiles, birds and of course Koalas. The facility is well maintained, wheelchair accessible and good for young children.

We camped in KB for 2 nights and very much wanted to do some tours, in particular snorkeling tours on the barrier reef. When we asked the staff we were told there were no snorkeling tours on the island, only self guided tours, we then enquired about possibly doing segway tours for a laugh, but were again assured there were...

Loved this place, the accommodation was cool, outside in a bungalow, so you felt like you were outside but safe from insects !!! The rooms were basic but clean and bedding clean. Toilet block was near by and clean and showers were hot. The koala sanctuary is well worth a visit

We didn't actually stay here but had breakfast with the koalas and LOVED it!! The food was very tasty and the staff was friendly and knowledge of all the animals they let us hold. Abbey made the experience very enjoyable and fun! He even let my boyfriend hold the koala twice because the first picture they took didn't turn out....
