Top spot around town.”

This is a place worth spending your money if you are looking to meet soulful people with a passion for what they do. The whole backpacker is so clean and the staff is incredible. The bed are comfortable and the kitchen is just amazing to say the least. It has every thing you’ll need to make your food with. The location is perfectly situated close to the promenade, restaurants and shop. Clifton beach is just around the corner too. I love this place so much and will come back over and over and over, no doubts.
