Lust auf eine Nacht im Freien, dann dieses Hostel buchen!! Unser gebuchtes und bestätigtes 2-Bett-Zimmer war nicht frei, dafür wurde uns dann von der sehr unfreundlichen Rezeptionistin je ein Bett in den Mehrbettzimmern angeboten. Dass wir das von uns gebuchte Zimmer nicht erhalten haben, ist uns in 4 Wochen Australien nur in diesem Hostel passiert. Deshalb sind wir weiter zum KI Central Backpackers. Dort war zum Glück noch was frei, was unseren Wünschen entsprach.
