Great stay!”

We stayed in the backpackers lodge in a room with a queen bed. It was exactly as advertised, and cheap as chips at just over $60 a night. The sink in the room was handy, the kitchen and lounge was a really nice space which was well equipped. The bathrooms are basic and a bit tired but perfectly adequate and the shower pressure was awesome! It met all of our needs, it was lovely to pop down to the bar for a game of pool, and just relaxing in paradise was food for the soul. The staff were so lovely and welcoming, thank you. We would definitely use it as a home base again ❤
