It was a bit different from an ordinary backpakcers mainly because it's also a holiday park. You have to go outside to go to the toilet, shower, and kitchen. They also have a swimming pool, hot spa and trampoline - great for children. The 10-bed dorm room was divided into three sections, two of which had a curain you can draw for some privacy. I didn't feel like sleeping in the 10-bed dorm room at all, which was good. The room had its own fridge. I wouldn't recommend this place as a backpackers, but happily recommend it as a holiday park.
