Hostelzoo opens resort on Great Keppel

Price comparison website has opened its own eco backpacker hostel on the tropical Great Keppel Island.

The hostel is on part of the old YHA property GKI Holiday Village and will be known as Hostelzoo Island Eco Backpackers and will be the only backpacker-style accommodation in the Keppels.

The village is totally self-sufficient, generating its own electricity and relying on rainwater for living needs. The village only accommodates 12 travellers in two six-bedded dorms. With such limited numbers, it’s not intended as a money making venture but as an opportunity for intrepid travellers to get access to what they’ve been missing on the East Coast backpacker trail.

Hostelzoo founder Scott Ryan said, “Great Keppel used to be a popular backpacker haunt but after the closure of the island’s major resort, most people believed that the entire island had closed. These rumours really affected the island’s local accommodation providers. In reality, this place still has a great traveller vibe and we want to share it with as many backpackers as we can.”

Hostelzoo Island is now open and accepting bookings.
