I absolutely loved it! All I want to do is go back. The bungalow was very cosy, clean, with everything you need. I specially loved the electric kettle and cups to have tea or coffee in the room. All the facilities, always clean, the guests were nice too and the staff always helpful. The best part is all the wildlife you have right there, wallabies at night roaming the camp, the butterfly walk just around the corner, the fruit-bats that come out at sunset and all the birds constantly flying by.

It was good but maybe put a table in the rooms and a fridge to put stuff down and keep things cold but we had a fine stay

Loved the hostel and the guy working the bar and reception was awesome!! Only issue was the limited WiFi, when there was little to no service and was needed for emails etc

Nice and cheap. Bed sheets were stained tho, pool unusable and green... Only one washing machine worked. Little bit annoying. Otherwise good. Get what you pay for.

Had a lovely time, the rooms are so nice and clean. The staff are friendly especially the girl who works in the evenings who came to help us with the washing machine. Disappointed that you can’t hold a koala due to covid but you can share a bathroom and a kitchen with travellers.

Excellent although Disability access is a distance from accommodation and the single step up to ladies abultions is high.

The Kiwi guy from Christchurch was a legend. I had booked an upgrade initially without realising the location was right next to the bar and pool. He swapped us out to a bungalow, and even juggled to get us one with a fridge. Incredibly good service when the fault was my own for not inquiring about the location of the upgrade. I highly recommend this place, awesome location, clean and tidy with really good showers.

YHA believes that you should be given a true picture of what other guests have to say about our hostels. That’s why when you give us your email address, you will be invited to rate your hostel stay upon checkout.

We review these ratings daily, and publish any comments whether they are good or bad. However, there are a few instances where we will not publish comments online:

INAPPROPRIATE OR OFFENSIVE COMMENTS

Inappropriate or offensive comments include, but are not limited to, personal harassment or discrediting of YHA staff, hate speech, sexually explicit language, swearing or references to illicit drug usage.

UNSUBSTANTIATED OR INCORRECT CLAIMS

We will not publish any comments that are not directly related to the hostel, or your experience during your stay.

Hostels will have the right to have negative comments removed if they can prove that claims are unsubstantiated, incorrect or you did not stay at the hostel that you are commenting on.

We will not publish comments that include full staff names, irrespective of whether your comment is positive or negative.

First names of staff will be published in positive comments only.

If you make a negative comment, we will remove any reference to particular staff members.
