Liked: It is very close to the beach. Free surfboards but only 5. You can throw away the bodyboards and only buy surfboards. There is a huge kitchen, swimming pool and barbecue area.

Disliked: Sometimes not easy to meet people, because it is huge. No alc drinks after 10pm or 11pm should be 0 am.

29 May 2010 Mary would recommend this property

Liked: Very clean, beautiful setting & environment! Everyone respectful & polite! The only downfall of this one is that the front entrance gets locked quite early in the evening, making it tough to come in & out any hours of the night, especially if you arrive there late! Almost was locked out, luckily night staff happened to be passing by shortly after I arrived, thought I was going to be camping out front for the night! (Needs to be better access for travelers coming in late that don't have local phone access!)

Liked: The hostel was more like a hotel, excellent value for money and it's so close to the beach, pub shops & next door is a great bakery where you can get a fantastic flat white to take away. I only stayed 1 night as a stop over but i have rebooked 3 nights for when i leave Australia

13 January 2010 Samantha would recommend this property

Liked: The location was so nice. It was laid back & right next to the beach, with few little shops that had the stuff in you needed, little cinema & a few nice restaurants. But if you wanted to get into the City it was easy, by bus straight there took 40minutes, easily done.Has a lovely refreshing pool there, bikes/surf boards to hire FOR FREE, nice big kitchen & dining area, TV room & gaming room to. Nice place to stay : )
