Most people's idea of a backpackers will be zillions of miles from the upmarket but homely realty of this pace. Exceptionally clean rooms, the twin/double options are fantastic value for money with nice en suites, and the staff have unreserved enthusiasm to make your stay a good one. If they ever have a bad day, they don't show it. Could not recommend more. In fact, all the other backpackers on our trip after this one could not live up to expectations so this place defo raises the bar.
