The Rosebank Lodge and Backpacker is a cheap place to stay and you get what you pay for.
Yes, there are no towels but as a backpackers I brought my own anyway. The place is small and cold during the winter, but there are lots of blankets.
The staff is very friendly and do their best as far as possible.
The kitchen lacks some equipments but luckily I had brought my own cup and utensils based on experiences from travelling around the world.
It is safe to walk to the Rosebak Mall and to the Backpackers Ritz (even at night) for eg. pre-departure meetings.
