    Hey
    Anyone here have accommodation suggestions at Falls for singles??
    Something similar to Buller Backpackers at Mt Buller.
    I've been looking but all the on mountain options appear more suited to groups.
    Don't really need much, just a bed to sleep in.
    Thanks

    another possibility is howman's gap, a few km below the village. unfortunately they are not catering for the public so much now -concentrating more on school groups. I think they have a policy that they can't have school kids and adults at the same time. they will still have some times available though

    Howmans took steps to boost year-round occupancy.

    That brought in some singles whose behaviour wasn't a good fit. They treated it like a hotel.

    In terms of the mix of kids and adult strangers, management has done some physical segregation.
