"This place had a very "home" like feel to it. Immediately felt relaxed and comfortable. All the other travellers staying here were super friendly and not once did I feel unease. The staff were great! Very accomodating.…"

Heather Rowe

17 April 2008 Heather would recommend this property

Liked: The kookaburra inn felt cute and cosy! This hostel seemed well organized, as though the management had actually put thought into the needs and desires of the hostel guests. The kitchen was clean & well-kept, towels (and even a blanket!) were provided in the room. I liked the fact that the room had a sink in it, even though the bathrooms were shared. Even the way the internet was set up (as a coin-pay station) seemed far more sensible than the weird pay-at-desk-and-get-piece=of-paper-with-code-on-it that a lot of hostels seem to have going on...
