We booked a double ensuite room, it was very private and quiet, it didn't feel like a hostel. The atmosphere is definitely beautiful and relaxing. My only complaint is the bathroom sink, it was literally impossible to was your face in it, even brushing your teeth and shaving were a major challenge, it's a half sink, and the mirror sticks out so when you bend over you bump your head on the mirror and water gets on the floor. Also they should put floor mats in front of the shower, when you step out of the shower it creates a puddle, and this puddle is rotting away the wood floor. I hate to see the floor being ruined, and a $5 bathmat could fix this. My last minor complaint is about the bed, well I actually thought it was a pretty comfy bed, it was much more soft than the other beds I've slept in in Australia, but I'm pretty light, my boyfriend on the other hand could feel the wood slats under the bed, he's about 100ks, so if you weigh over 100ks, not the best bed for you. To fix this all they need to do is put a piece of plywood under the bed, then you wouldn't feel the slats. So all in all it was a great place, I loved the atmosphere, just a couple simple changes would make it even better.
