This was our first night on the Queen Charlotte walkway and we stayed in the 'backpacker-style' cabins. These were clean, but small with no storage but for the clear floor in front of the tea/coffee station. Our biggest disappointment was to find the shared bathrooms were very basic, bare concrete floor affairs, reminiscent of public toilets of yesteryear. To find that on top of our tariff we needed $2 for a shower was galling, and in the case of the men's not even that could get hot water flowing! There is also no shared kitchen area or fridge in the block. A long ways off what I would call backpacker.
