After spending a night at 1770 backpackers which was very disapointing and boring place to be I heard around town that southern cross backpackers was the pick of hostels to stay in 1770. SoI booked in and they picked me up from the bus stop. When I got there I thought WOW what an amazing place. It feels more like a resort than a backpackers. beautiful pool, tropical gardens EVERYWHERE, with cute little cabins with verandahs. I stayed in a 4 bed cabin with an ensuite and it was called Sweeden. All the cabins are named after countries. The owner said they are making their own world. I spent my first 2 hours just walking around the property taking pics and even saw some kangaroos in the horses paddock. The staff were so friendly and the hostel one of the cleanest Ive seen. Love the cool music that plays all day'. They have a bus that takes you in and out of town and all the tours came to pick me up. Spent a lot of time sunbaking at the pool.
and drinking their good cheap beer and playing pool and ping pong.
