    5/5 Excellent

    • Liked: Staff & service, room comfort

    The location is the best. As many of reviews said, the building is old and the floor is squeaky, but they are upgrading by painting walls and providing in-room shelves, desk and individual lockers. The hospitality of the staff, especially Ashley working at reception, was super! She was so friendly and attentive to make our stay happy in many ways. I would definitely return to Home Backpackers!!
