Thank you for your feedback, and I'm sorry the guests you were sharing our facility with left you feeling 'not impressed' specifically with them. We try to ensure all our guests have an enjoyable stay, but we are not in a position to do much in the manner of pre-screening etc. We have such a wide range and variety of guests at any point in time, which is all part of offering a backpackers facility.

Very good backpackers

Top place, even for a family of 4. Comfy beds, clean, great setup. So relaxing in lounge with G&Ts, nibblies, books and watching the sun set. Also, an excellent meal and evening at the sailing club.

Very reasonable price and amazing views of the beach right across the road. It was clean, had a comfy bed and was perfect for us stopping a night while visiting friends in the area.
