It IS like a hostel, but to my surprise, i didn't even mind sharing the bathrooms..hot water, very clean, perfectly usable and convenient. Our room was basic but pleasant, lots of light, just enough space and clean. Again to my surprise, I really enjoyed the communal living areas downstairs, eating at big tables..et fok form UK and Europe and..., and missed it when the next day we stayed at a more conventional motel..where i felt stuck in my room!.
Darwin's cafe is a total plus - great fresh food, and lovely atmosphere--for reading, sitting,waiting for the others, chatting if so inclined...botanical gardens entrance included in hotel cost...sorry, but didn't at all take to the rather wierd botanical gardens, but appreciated trails to the mudflats. Staff was helpful and pleasant. I'd go back
