Lovely quiet backpackers in a beautiful old building, across from a park and walking distance to everything. Communal facilities are clean and well maintained. Friendly staff.

A mirror in room 6 would be nice. Kitchen facilities excellent, plenty of fridge space to store your food.

We arrived late and left early so didn't get to fully access the facilities on offer. Showers were private and hot. Would definitely stay again.

Clean, central to shops, pub and gorge walk.

Pros: Position.
Cons: Happy with it as is.
Location: Location is easy walking distanc to supermarket and other shops. A great pub is just in the next street. A cafe with good coffee across the park.
The check in was quick as we had paid in advance. Staff were very helpful. It is close walking distance to shops and restaurants,pub and a great cafe for breakfast. It is a short walk to the Gorge walk. We bed was reasonably comfortable. We had a private bathroom which was clean and very convenient having just done the Overland track.

Overnight stay

We stayed here one night and the service was good. We didn't go in any of the common areas because we weren't there for long. Room was good.

Easy, clean, friendly

Cons: There were a quite a few daddylongleg spiders in my room, harmless but still bit creepy. They should have been removed.
Easy location for airport access, coles closeby, great kitchen, friendly staff and people, tidy clean room.
