Clean, friendly accomadation

Our greeting was very friendly and cheerful. The security to get to our room was thorough , if a little complicated , first time through. Our twin room was clean, comfortable and ensuite looked new. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils etc. However it was very busy because of a large group on the AnzacLong weekend. There wre still enough hot plates , fridges etc. but another kettle would have been useful. The main recreation room was well stocked, pool table etc. and the other was a quieter area near sleeping areas. It was the first time my husband had stayed at a Backpackers and he was pleasantly surprised!

Thank you for your excellent feedback - it is the first time we have had a guest mention the need for another kettle, which we can easily add! We do enjoy sharing our hostel, culture and amazing town with fab guests like you!
