Probably a bit expensive for a private room at a backpackers, room was cramped and no tv. But did the job and staff were helpful.

Not the best hostel

Good location, average kitchen, "free breakfast" was just bread and jam, "free parking" was actually just free street parking nearby, if you could find a spot. No outside alcohol allowed as the entire place is licensed. Window in room didn't close.

Over Night Stay

No hassle stay. Quick check in, friendly service. Great place if all you need is a place to lie your head. Only negative was the noise, lets just say very thin walls.

A place to lay our heads!

Pros: Covered in the above I think. Enjoyed the ambience.
Cons: Shared, limited, outside bathroom facilities - and getting to sleep with doors banging as people accessed bathrooms/toilets. Not a big deal really.
Location: Beach, hotels.
Sometimes you only need a place to sleep without all the bells and whistles and so this accommodation suited us - as well as being affordable. The only downside was the outside shared facilities which did not seem sufficient for the number of guests. We only stayed one night and were away before the sun was up the next morning so didn't have the breakfast experience.
