    It's got everything a traveller needs... beds, showers, toilets, chill area and BAR. That's all you need and it is in a great location, walkable distance to the waterfront but also near to bars and places to eat. The people are cool, mostly just drifters but all with the same mindset of a backpacker and will help with anything, I would recommend this place to anyone looking for good budget - no fuss accommodation.
