    Property condition


    • Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
    • Disliked: Room comfort

    The twin room was next to the kitchen where people came in and had very loud concersations until 2.30am and the first people in the morning arrived at 6.30am. The only windows where to the kitchen and the hallway and there was no fresh air. Over all too hot and too noisy to get enough sleep.

    Bed was very uncomfortable, but the black curtain to make it private and dark was a nice idea.

    Fab hostel near Tahuna Beaxh

    Lovely place to stay with friendly staff. Great airport drop off service. Good Thai restaurant nearby for takeout. Beach is a short walk away. Bed was comfy. No external windows in the private queen bed room I was in, but a fan was provided. I’d stay here again :)

    Best Backpackers

    Very friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The rooms are clean, comfortable with good beds and access to electricity and wifi. The showers and toilets are clean and well lit. Communal areas are also good. Highly recommended overall.

    Pros: The quality of the people.

    Cons: I don't know.

    Location: Beach road is a nice location.

    1 yön pikavisiitti matkalla Abel tasmaniin

    Hyvä hinta-laatusuhde. Ei pöytää huoneessa (2 hengen huone) johon laskea tavaroita. Melko värikkäät maalaukset joka paikassa seinillä. Samassa rakennuksessa baari jossa dj soitti musiikkia n klo 23 asti. Ei ilmastointia.
