We spent 2 amazing days at Yungaburra, mountain biking, canoeing and walking in the rain forest. We met a very friendly staff. See you soon guys! We joined them for a nice Aussie BBQ and we ate a lot of fruit. Rooms and toilets were always tidy and cleen.

Paul picked our group up in the morning and right off the bat I knew he was going to be a great tour guide. He got the whole bus involved with music, games, and just made the trip fun! We really packed it in the first day: waterfalls, volcanic crater pools, jungle walks, and ended the day with a delicious...

During my 4 months trip in NZ, Asia, America and Auisse this was my best stay by far! I didn't plan to stay the night but I ended up spending 2 nights. Mountainbike and canoeing with awesome Darius (guide) and his dog Cheif was great even though it was raining big time. Spending the evening with couples of beer, barbecue...

I would definitely recommend this nice little Hostel. It is clean, cheap and there is just a nice ambiance in this well decorated accommodation. The staff is friendly and Tours can be directly booked with the own guide. Of course you can't expect any luxury, the rooms are small, not air conditioned and there is a mosquito net since the...
