Stayed here for 3 nights and felt very relaxed in this characterful place. There's a warm and open atmosphere in the communal areas and the host gave us a nice welcome and a very reasonable rate that we didn't even ask for. The host, Ian is always on hand, often communicating where backpackers can help each other out (e.g. he instigated a group outing between us and some other backpackers to use car share and relay to get to and from the T crossing - saving us all $40 each in shuttle costs). A fun place, we'd come here again.
