I visited Mana Lagoon backpackers after some months of working in Australia. This was the perfect place to relax and to have the feeling that you are really far away from "normal life". The welcoming is amazing, the manager is extremely friendly and all the staff are working hard to make your stay as pleasant as possible. As I am... More
