Good people, hostel not the best!

3/ 5

Wasn’t the best hostel, but the people made it good. The managers were fair and I got on really well with them. Little bit of a shock when you get there with room, but it does get a deep clean every two weeks and floors mopped daily, it’s really up to the people who live in the room to keep it tidy. Big grass area. No pool. Small gymnasium, wifi daily trips to coles and back. Journey to work and back included.

Transport was included in the rent, mini buses were used as long as your over 25 you could drive it.

Local shops were Coles, Kmart little village with shops. You could walk there or a daily transport after work and a few times on the weekend you’d be dropped off at Coles.
Wifi wasn’t amazing but it worked. I think they were in the process of upgrading $15 weekly $45 for the month.
In free time you can use the local pool, couple of pubs, 1 night club. Bowls club which catered to backpackers. Restaraunts kfc Pizza Hut. If you had a car or rented a mini bus which was in the area you could travel to the beach which wasn’t far, good views mountains waterfalls good activities. If you’re willing to travel

TV, small gym and weights. Sometimes we would get a lift to the beach but not too often
