    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

    Great location: beaches, shops, cinemas, restaurants just on the doorsteps. The owner Julie is a lovely lady. The room is nice and comfortable. The bathrooms are clean. Kitchen is good. But the amenities are very basic: no plugs for phone in the room, no towels and hair dryer (you need to hire them). Wifi didn't work in my room. For a short stay I absolutely recommend you to stay with them.

      very clean neat and tidy and surprisingly very quiet considering it is in the main street on The Entrance. We have no hesitation in recommending the hostel to anyone. Herbie and Lydia,

      Not great

      I booked in for one night to break a long journey. However this backpackers was noisy and had a weird smell. From the furthest room in the corridor I could still hear the talking and loud tv until nearly midnight, as well as a dryer or spinner in the next room that started and stopped from 10.30pm. Near midnight I packed my stuff and left. For me the cheap price wasn't worth a night of no sleep.
