The room was exactly as described. It was comfy and clean. The backpackers is only a block away from the central shops and restaurants so just a 5 minute walk away. Good value for a good location.

Well situated to walk into town, and great nights sleep. The room matched the town aesthetic well.

Kate has got it just right! A friendly welcome, very comfortable room (excellent bed - electric blanket most welcome after a cold, wet night viewing penquins!), wealth of local knowledge and information, breakfast and great conversation. Will recommend to other travellers without hesitation. Thank you Kate. It was great meeting you. :)

A fantastic place to stay. If you're travelling alone, book room 5, the steam punk room! Very comfortable, clean and a fantastic view! I also peeked into room 6 that had a double bed and a single which was beautiful and had the same view. Great value, great hosts, stay here!

A very clean and comfortable b'packer that was a pleasure to stay in, and Kate (as the host) was charming and very welcoming. I recommend it without hesitation. The steampunk single room was brilliant with its view over the harbour and the first rays of the morning sun flooding in. Its a place where young and old can feel very comfortable and treated well.
