This is a quiet little hostel in the middle of wine country. We stayed here on the way from Byron Bay to the Blue Mountains. It is clean, tidy and peaceful with plenty of parking. It has been recently refurbished by the look of the place. The owners are friendly and willing to give advice on places to see and restaurants to use, plus the best wineries to partake at. This is a thoroughly nice establishment.
