VALUE & Vibe

YEs its a backpackers. It was clean enough & the private rooms were plenty large enough. Dont understand peoples lower reviews. The best price in town for a room & you should know you get hat you pay for in general. In this case I felt lke we got just a little more. They have scheduled outings/activities daily. It's not a crazy party hostel as there are signs everywhere no drinking or loud noise after hours. Great staff!
