    Ended up staying at this hostel over Christmas. The staff put on an excellent BBQ and helped to make the day special. It was a quick stroll down to the lake front which was beautiful. The rooms and bathrooms were pretty clean as well.

    It won't let me post the site I used to book per TripAdvisor policy. But if you search on booking DAWT com you'll find what you're looking for.
