    The owners ensure that backpackers are welcome so long as they are considerate of others. It’s possibly the quietest place I’ve stayed even though it’s in the CBD.

    I’m getting a little too old for cold communal bathrooms.

    Breakfast was only average to be fair. I was under the impression there was going to be more available in our deluxe room but once I had it explained to me was okay with that. The staff were very accommodating of any requests/questions that we had. Location is excellent.

    The description of what was available in our room could have been made clearer on the website for booking.

    Breakfast is adequate. Location is superb. Reception staff great.

    Showers could be a little cleaner.
