Liked: Easy going atmosphere, the staff are very friendly and try to help you out whenever they can (such as organising a trip to Kangaroo Island with other backpackers), I feel safe here and the free pancake breakfast is amazing.

Disliked: Nothing. It's not the cleanest place on the planet, but it's great value for your money.
