Being a couple who are entering the golden years, this was our first ever stay at a backpackers. We chose this place mainly for it's location. We arrived off the Bluebridge ferry, and were catching the Northern Explorer train the next morning.
We chose a double with ensuite, and were pleasantly surprised with how much room we had. Our bed was so comfortable, neither of us wanted to get out of bed when our alarm went off. The water pressure was good in the shower, and we had no traffic noise, as we were on the other side of the building (looking out at another building) if you looked out the window.
We had some drinks in the bar, which was well priced, and we dined from the cafe, for both our dinner and breakfast. The prices, and size of meals are amazing. They are nothing flash, but certainly good value for money.
Staff were friendly and helpful, and the building has amazing character.
We would certainly use this establishment again if it suited our needs.More
