Now that's quite a statement from someone who has lived in North Queensland, Australia!! I could list a few faults with the guesthouse but overall, this place is perfect. I am paying $8 a night for very...

The staff are very friendly and helpful, especially if you need help booking buses etc. We stayed in a double with AC for $12 a night and the room was spotless and the bathroom was particularly well maintained. Although this guesthouse is situated a bit of a walk from the main hotspots on Occhuteal beach and Serendipity beach, you can...
