Just got back from a trip to Ocean Backpackers. Great location in the middle of town, near shops harbour and skate park for the kids! You must see the new Damien Hurst sculpture - awesome!
Clean, comfortable, well equipped and the most friendly and accommodating owners you could wish for. We have been before and it is constantly being improved and updated, including a heated drying room for wetsuits and surfboard storage.
We will be back next year!! Highly recommended.
