I spend almost 2 weeks here, clean bedroom, bathroom and kitchen, the Wifi is free and fast. The owner is very friendly and makes feel yourself at home. The rent is affordable mostly in the CBD (around $35/40 the night depends on the type of room), laundry $4. Perfect for backpackers I recommend it.

All utensils thick...
