The team at Wild Zebra Backpackers did not know what Wotif was and where confused by my booking and payment. Other than that, the room I had was clean and it was a great location.

Expensive backpackers

Quite expensive for just a backpackers. Got a private room, but shared showers. Close walking distance to concert venue and situated right in town, so I guess paying for location.
