bizarre but nice hostel, a slight tinge of creepiness!
10 March 2003
We decided to stay in Kuranda simply because we wanted to experience the Kuranda Scenic Railway, which is well worth the money by the way! The hostel was big, with very few guests, infact I think all of the people we met there (about 4) were employees! Because of its size and lack of guests, the hostel felt very empty, and it is somewhat rundown aswell which gave it a rather creepy feel! The TV lounge was pretty disgusting, as was the pool, it really needs a lot of work but the grounds were absolutely beautiful, the nicest i've ever seen in a hostel. I was also impressed by the kitchen, which was really well laid out and had everything you needed. Overall, it was a nice place to stay, definitely something different, but Kuranda itself is not worth the time i'm afraid.
