More of a sharehouse…

2/ 5

Nobody on reception, but it’s cleaned twice a week.

Very little to do in the area or in the hostel, and security isn’t great.

We weren’t impressed with the farmwork they found us at SSS strawberries, they pretended to be nice but screwed us over. what we actually earned was 0.17 cents per punnet, and filling 200 punnets a day we only earned  $34 a day. WE worked 5-10 hour days, 4/5 days a week.

Hinkler Shopping Centre and Dan Murphy’s is within walking distance.

Wifi is BAD but free.
