One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in, hands down. Dreamtime is a hostel with style: set against a backdrop of thick vegetation and a canopy of tropical trees, Dreamtime will make you feel as though you’re in the heart of the jungle – with modern amenities. The rooms are clean, bunks don’t squeak, and though you have to pay $1 for 3 hours of air-conditioning, those mighty little units won’t disappoint your overheated, humidity-logged body.
The outdoor common area is perfect for gathering in the evening to meet your fellow hostelmates – and with frequent events like all-you-can-eat-pizza, movie, and barbecue nights, the chance to socialize is never far off. Plus, the small reception bar is always well stocked with local bottled beer for $3 each (a huge draw), and it seems like every night you can get a deal for a free drink at a nearby popular bar. (Be sure to also ask about the free meal deal at the Green Ant Cantina next door!)
Perhaps the best highlight of this fantastic little place is their Aussie BBQ Night on Wednesdays: join the crowd in the common area for a generous barbecue and flame dancers show. You’ll get a heaping plateful of several kinds of meat, potatoes, salad, and pasta, and get the chance to try kangaroo and crocodile. After you’ve had your fill, a team of professional fire dancers puts on a wildly impressive half hour show, choreographed to music. And for the grand finale, three "lucky" raffle winners get hauled up to compete in a delightfully humiliating didgeridoo competition...to win a T-shirt and a beer.
