i arrived at Billabong about 3 hours ago...Wed 24th Sept 2008. i booked after reading some good reviews...christ were they wrong!! i got to my Tiny 4 bed room it was filthy and i was to share with 3 guys...which i wouldn't generally have a problem with for a backpackers if they were tidy and the place didn't reek!!! and obviously because of the smell someone left the balcony door open so when i went for a shower after a 20hr flight the place was covered in bugs and cockroaches!!!
i asked to be moved but was told they were fully booked so i got a refund instead but sadly i'm goin to have to stay tonight....can't see me getting much rest!!! Avoid at all costs!!!
