I assign 5 stars when all the services are great PLUS when something excellent can be said about the place. This review is about my trip as a backpacker, thus do not... More

Perfect place to chill and enjoy some beach time, lots to do. Skydiving was amazing! BBQ night was perfect to end our stay. Will be back! Manager and his team are friendly, funny and helpful - nice that everyone lives there and welcomes you. Booked our airlie beach boat here and saved some cash which was bonus :) Thanks again... More

The place had a really cool vibe and the aesthetic is cool too. However that doesn't really make up for the fact that the facilities and staff were pretty poor quality. I had a pretty bad experience here - not a good memory of my trip down the East Coast. The staff don't really give you any info on the... More

The staff weren't very helpful seemed like an effort for them To give you information. Very much a working hostel, majority there seemed to be completing their farm work. So very quiet in the day. Not very close to the shop you need to get a bus. Which they to run at set times. Rooms were clean and tidy tho.

The smell from the room permeated our clothes which we immediately washed the following day. Slept above the covers, fully clothed and had to drink a six-pack just to fall asleep. Dog and cat were lovely. Would never... More

I believe that it used to be a lovely place a few years to go. But there is no love there anymore. I don't even know why there was even staff there. They didn't do any work! And the kitchen was super dirty! One of the staff members walked in and said "ew the kitchen is disgusting" and then the... More

Stayed here in a double en-suite room and it was awesome. Air con, TV and comfy bed. Pool just outside is nice too. There is a cool little bar about 100metres away too so if you want to shoot out for dinner or a few drinks
