The best hostel I've stayed at!
The hostel is conveniently located between the North side set of shops and just a little further back, but a pleasant walk over the bridge of the lovely Fitzroy River, to the city centre. The hostel is nestled off the main road in a quiet, rural surrounding. It has a relaxed, friendly atmosphere and some lovely pets, to add that homely feel. The owners Ozzie and Steph are friendly, accommodating and hard working, to keep the hostel at a high standard of cleanliness. The hostel mostly attracts backpackers just passing through. There are also long termers working locally -- a friendly bunch, if you scratch the surface. The hostel has an open design layout, with an excellent modern kitchen, a very clean bathroom and a cool lounge room, with very comfortable leather couches. The dorm I stayed in was also clean and had a comfortable bed. The air conditioning was much appreciated! A refreshing dip in the hostel pool is a MUST after a hot, humid day! Their free bicycle hire is a handy way to familiarize yourself with the local city. My only criticism is that hostel was slow in responding to an initial email enquiry and another email was left unanswered. Both ovens in the kitchen were out of working order.
