    Great staff and location. Very close to restaurants and activities. Dorm rooms are nice and beds exceed most expectations of a backpackers. Breakfast is an extra that can be added on but is well worth it.

    We stayed here for 1 night on our way to hike the Otter Trail. The staff and owners were very friendly, helpful and it was a lovely environment. We initially reserved a shared bunker room but decided to stay in the Kingfisher room. Highly recommend!
