Stephan Poser

19 September 2009 Stephan would recommend this property

Liked: quite a different experience to your usual backpackers-party-hostel on the east coast.It's basically just a normal house with 3 bedrooms (2-3 beds each) and the owner (Phil) living in the garden in a tiny separate building. So you're sharing a house + living room + kitchen + garden with a max of 7 people, everything is really cozy and Phil is really laid back and tells you everything about traveling to Fraser Island. He even let's you sleep in the garden or on the couch if you're coming back from Fraser later than expected and everything is full.Just be aware that he doesn't really approve of the usual 3 day Party+anything goes+Jeep+spring-break tour that most people nowadays seem to be doing.So basically it's quite a nice change from all the partying you'll face on the backpackers trail between Brisbane and Airlie Beach.

denise morrow

19 April 2009 denise would recommend this property

Liked: A couple run this teeney hostel which is basically a house. Very clean, excellent place to chill and meet down to earth people. Handy for shops and beach.The husband of the hostel ownership can be a bit judgemental and pessimistic which got a bit tiring. He put a downer on all my plans asking 'why do you want to do that?'. Met a couple of girls since my stay there and they said the same thing about him. You hardly ever see him tho so thats good. His wife is fantastic however, very friendly, socialble and helpful. I extended my stay here despite the husband as i found it a lovely place to relax.

Inger van Merm

17 November 2007 Inger would recommend this property

Liked: First of all it looks exactly like on the photos shown on internet, which is not always the case with other hostels. Secondly it's a very cosy hostel, small and clean, and it gives you a homily feeling, which you kind of miss being a backpacker. It was lovely to stay there and I would definitely come back there if I was ever in the area again. The owners are also very friendly ad welcoming people.
