"...chill atmosphere...amenities galore.....and a sweet view of the bay."

Lonely Planet 2008 - Australia

"Away from the madding crowd, this small and quiet backpackers occupies a great vantage point on top of a hill. The atmosphere is friendly, the dorms have just four beds and the double rooms are some of the best around"
