On a tough schedule driving from Melbourne to Sydney, we stayed over at this park on the night of 8 April 2017. The next day we had to catch a plane from Sydney to Wellington, New Zealand and things were pretty rushed, however once we arrived in NZ we realised that my mobile phone had gone missing. The last time...

The atmosphere is quite nice, the people running it are nice, but the cabins are the real letdown, metal bars made into beds and inside looks like a caravan from the 70s. but if you got nowhere to stay its better than the car. pool and bbq areas nice. not recommended for those who cant climb stairs or cant sleep...

Staff were attentive and helpful during check in and out. The facilities are extensive and very useful, there was also an outdoor BBQ which we used. There is a pool but we didn't use it. The kitchen is fully equipped, wifi was only really accessible via the YHA communal area. We had a caravan for our bedroom, it was old,...

It was good for a night, as it was convenient for our stop heading down the coast. Arrived at 1030pm and it was good the key was available and staff were accomodating and friendly. It was disappointing to have no sheet or bedding on a plastic mattress which engulfed you while sleeping. It would be nice to have in the...

We were disappointed by the condition of the cabin and it could do with a good clean. It is great to be able to take your pet to the cabin but shouldn't mean you have to compromise on quality or cleanliness. The bed was hard and uncomfortable, the mattress protector was not fresh and the shower water was hot but...

“You may wish to negotiate a private room, or double room, if available. Cabins at the back of the main hostel are quieter, and have their own parking. There is a small open air swimming pool, available for hostel guests.”
