28 April 2011

Liked: It was a good walk to get into the city via the esplanade. Bryan and Linda were extremely nice people. The cereal and coffee every morning were great. The people were very nice and accommodating. Brian handles everything you want to do. This couple really loves what they do.

Disliked: There was no Internet the entire time I was there. That was frustrating as it was a draw to that hostel was the free Internet. Pillows were flat. There are a lot of tiny ants in the kitchen and out beds. There are no hooks in the bathrooms or bedrooms for you to hang a towel or sweater. There were no forks in out main kitchen but plenty of spoons!

Liked: Non-party facility. All people there behaved in a mature fashion. Clean. Friendly staff. "coastal" atmosphere." They let a lot of people work for their stay.

Disliked: NO LOCKERS! What is wrong with these hostels which can't go to some used furniture place and get a discount set of lockers. We bring computers, money, credit cards, cameras, iPods, and so on. Too much stuff to carry around with you all day and too much to lose.

Liked: The staff were really friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. The pool was great. Really good for booking tours!! (go with Passions of Paradise for the reef).

Disliked: The kitchen was quite dirty and there were lots of bugs though this could just be due to the location.

Liked: A superb little hostel situated about 15 minutes from the town centre, fantastic and friendly staff who even at 8pm managed to book us on a great barrier reef tour the very next day. Beds are extremely comfy and even got a fridge in our room to keep the beers cool, I've been in worse 4* hotels. Well worth the high rating!
