    Location was amazing, but unfortunatly we had gusty winds, and made it unpleasent!

    Music on too loud in the morning. Noisy younger backpackers up and making noise in the early hours of the morning. We had a double room with ensuite, floor was not clean at all. food was basic.

    Staff especially the lady in the reception (especially the name is Amy one) was unfriendly, grumpy, not willing to help or answer the questions.You can not expect luxury from a budget backpackers but you can expect friendly behaviour that does not exist in this place. I tink they hate the guests I mean all of them. They act like the people who stay there are just like a piece of shit. And loud music was horrible. I stayed in another backpackers in mission beach but they cared about friendliness and respect the people and not to disturb the people who payed to stay there. I know how the budget stay works but things are not going like that...
