We booked this place based on their website and didn't realise that this was a backpackers until we turned up.
We arrived and didn't know what we had to do? The main house is a reasonably old house that had 'private' stickers over most of the windows. We went in and had to ask someone (that was staying there) what to do and they told us that we have to phone the owners using the phone that was outside. Once we did this we were told which was our room. Luckily for us we had booked the studio unit that was seperate to the main house, as I don't think I would have wanted to have stayed in the main house.
The studio itself was really nice, an A framed unit, with a small kitchenette area, big bathroom and small TV.
The staff were really friendly and accommodating.
Overall the studio unit was really nice, even if it was a bit odd that it was on the same property as the main house.
