I liked the location and there were beautiful gardens.
The cleaner steals, they do not provide services as per advertised. They pretty much want you to check in so they can mistreat you and refuse a refund if you pay in advance. DO NOT PAY IN ADVANCE ...

The best place I&#39;ve stayed...”

I really like the place, it&#39;s got a really homely feel about it, great kitchens and living space. Good sitting areas and undercover space. The laundry is the best I&#39;ve seen in any backpacker ...
Just the showers could be upgraded abit, they&#39;re just abit tiny but its a pretty minor detail at the end of the day.
