This was an inexpensive clean hostel-like hotel. The location is perfect. The guests need to be in pretty good shape as there are lots of steps.

... he razor blades and the guy says to just take the clippers - no charge ! How good is that ?

This is the sight of the battle that is remembered every year by Australians around the globe on Anzac day. It ...
