I really like this place. There were plenty of blankets you could just take if you needed it, lots of information on the local area, the hostel was full of very friendly locals and long termers. I like these kind of hostels, others don't, it's just a matter of opinion. I like the feeling you get when people know and work with each other, they cook and drink together and will always invite you along.
The down point? The bathrooms were a way from the bedrooms, you had to kind of go through the lounge to get to them.
AU£20 a night, I also booked a Platypus Spotting trip through this hostel and you get a discount for doing so.
There's a nice out/in doors sitting room a tv room at the end of the kitchen, good cooking facilities and huge fridges.
Oh, it's quite a walk from the coach stop too, but if you arrive within office hours you can be picked up, there's also plenty of free parking outside the hostel.
Unique Quality: Platypus spotting tours booked through the hostel.
