Fantastic backpackers! A lot of the staff working here are long-term guests but they always made short-term travellers feel welcome. This backpackers definitely provides you with a home away from home, with a fantastic atmosphere, rooms and facilities. There is no wifi on the premises but there is free wifi at the library which is a 1 min walk. Love the idea of no one being on their phones and actually interacting and talking with one another. Would recommend to anyone.
