Homely backpackers close to town

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 29, 2006

Small backpackers about a 5 minute walk from the CBD. In a converted villa, so has a homely feel to the place. Staff were helpful and friendly. Our room was seperate from the main building, a nice, spacious double in the garden. Great garden, with herbs and flowers. Only bummer was having to walk accross the garden to get to the toilet in the night (our room was the only one that you had to do this and I think it was worth it for the privacy/quiet - not that the rest of the house seemed noisy).

Unique Quality: Car BBQ and pleasant garden
