HI-Malabar Farm was difficult to get to, but it was a fantastic value for the money. The manager, Mark, was friendly and a fabulous storyteller and he made us a delicious country breakfast in the mornings. Hostel was clean, beds were comfortable, bathrooms were neat and well-stocked with towels, soap, and other amenities. The gardens around the hostel were lovely and the front yard always filled with birds, ducks, and other wildlife. I would definitely recommend.

Mark was awesome. I wish we could have chatted for a while longer but my stay was only for 1 night.
