Schönes Hostel. Wir hatten ein kleines Häuscheb für uns mit eigenem Bad, obwohl wir einen Dorm gebucht haben :-) Leider war die Reseption erst ab17.00 Uhr offen zum Einchecken.

El personal és fantástico, te ayudan en todo lo que pueden y más. El albergue és muy bonito y está a menos de 5 minutos a pie de restaurantes, cafés, supermercados y bares. Es muy tranquilo y se hay muy buen ambiente. Lo recomiendo mucho si vais a pasar por Port Fairy
