  • Is it quiet at night?

    We love staying up late and chatting. We just ask guests to leave the main smoking area and head to our hidden chill area that has loads of comfy sofas and fairy lights! This creates the perfect balance between night owls and the guests that need to catch up on their beauty sleep.

  • Is there a shuttle available to get to the closest beach nearby? What are the other transportation options?

    Unfortunately not, sometimes we are happy to do pick ups and drop offs. HOWEVER, the walk is very short and you can walk right along the sea front and have a gander at the quirky painted rocks by the ocean. Our nearest and dearest seaside is Oxley Beach but all over coves are easily accessed on the shore line. Enjoy!

  • Is their late check in

    Unlike most hostels, we keep the lights on until late. Just ring the doorbell on arrival and there will be a member of staff to check you in and get you sorted! Check out is at 12pm so there's plenty of time to catch up on those z's!

  • Are sheets and towels included?

    Sheets are included and the beds are pre-made so you can snuggle up for a nap straight after you check in. Unfortunately we charge $3 for towels but you can keep them and take them on your travels after you pay this fee - yay!

  • How can I get to the closest beach from the property?

    It's a five minute walk or less, you take a left out of the front gate. Use your feet at the end of the road and take a right. Puff slightly as you walk up the hill and BAM! You're looking down at one of our best views - Oxley beach - which is rather spectacular at sunrise!
