    Extremely helpful staff, great little bungalows. Easy walk to town (15 mins) and a very clean and friendly environment. I stayed in the twin private room. Would definitely recommend! You can book all of your activities through the hostel as well. Hot showers are definitely...More

    We paid nearly 60 usd for our room but the service and the facilities were very very simple. The rooms were not cleaned and the personel was not particularly friendly. It felt like they were only interested in our money. Absolutely nothing was for free.

    Comfortable rooms, clean facilities, great common kitchen area and phenomenal staff. Hot, clean showers. Delicious food at their Bush Cafe. Recommended to rent the hostel's bikes for the day and explore town.

    Everything at backpackers was a delight! The staff were especially accommodating and friendly, providing us with all our needs, cheap bikes to rent and more. The property has great hammocks, swings, lounging tables, perfect for kicking the feet up after a long day of activities....More
