My husband and I stayed three nights here in an ensuite double room. It was impecibly clean and had the most comfortable bed we have experienced thus far in our travels. The kitchen is very well equiped and kept pretty much spotlessly clean.
As this is a small backpackers it has a lovely atmosphere, and it is lovely and peaceful at night. There are several picnic benches dotted around, and a large clothes line for drying. The staff were friendly and helpful. This is one of the nicest backpackers we have stayed at and we would definately stay again.
