Such a boring hostel. The rooms are nice, very nice showers and comfortable beds with air conditioning. The kitchen is ok as well. The bar is expensive and the food they serve is overpriced and terrible. The koala sanctuary is attached to the hostel and I was expecting to get some kind of discount because I was staying there, that...

This hostel was amazing as far as hostels are concerned. They did have some computer problems with my booking but it was not the hostels fault and they went above and beyond to make it right by giving me a single room.

This is the cutest place I have ever stayed at!! The Team is friendly, there's decent Speed WiFi, the Pool is really nice, I can't say anything about the rooms but their campgrounds is really cheap with 13$ a night for an unpowered site. The wildlife Park is definitely worth it! The only thing that might need improvement is the...

Stayed here for 3 nights, the whole place is pretty chilled out and the staff are helpful. The rooms are really good, I stayed in a 6-bed mixed dorm, wi-fi doesn't reach the rooms so you'll have to go to the front to connect but the room was clean and overall a good place to stay!

The location is pretty handy to the beach, just a quiet 400 metre stroll with a nice location for camp sites under the gum trees. Reception was helpful and friendly and well organised. The camp site area is pretty good with a fair bit of shade however some tables and chairs would be a great addition. Nice pool and bar...

We did the wildlife tour here. Didn't need to book, just turned up and paid on the day. Tour included birds, lizards, snakes and of course koalas. Even with the opportunity to hold a koala and have a picture taken. The tour guide seemed very knowledgeable and freely answered all questions put to her. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Really great place, staff great the wooden huts are very authentic. great value for money only reason it wasn't a 5 was your not aloud to take your own beer onto the site so when bar shuts you can't get anymore drinks which was a shame.

Got the bus to the Koala Village and bought my tour tickets once I got there. Got taken on our tour at 10am. Had a great tour guide who was funny and very knowledgable- he knew everything! Had the chance to hold reptiles, a python, feed a bird from our mouths with seeds and hold a koala! It was something...
