Eco Backpackers Hostel prides itself on delivering a budget experience with cleanliness, friendliness and a dash of style built-in. The sound-proof "pod" concept means guests have their own private space at dormitory prices. Female Dorm is provided tall mirror and hair dryer.

Exactly as advertised. Clean, cheap and (eco)friendly. The location is perfect if you want to be in the centre of what's happening. The capsule style beds gives you quite a lot of privacy for a dorm room. Most suitable for the adult backpacker.
