I made a booking with Booking.com, and then needed to change dates - no problem via this site.
Any hesitations about staying here, were soon gone once we settled our things inside.
My husband and I had a 'double pod' on the upper level, near the reception area.
They are a 'bit squeezy' once you get your bags up there too, but I think they are great!!!
The linen was spotless, the beds were comfy and so were the pillows!!
For a small fee we hired towels which were also of a good standard.
The air con worked really well (very hot outside!) as did the fans. Plenty of lighting from your bedside once the main lights went out, and a security box in the bed head of each bed that was accessed using the electronic bracelet you receive once you book in.
In fact, the security was really good all round. There is someone at the desk 24hrs with an electronic door that can be released from the service desk or with your electronic bracelet. So people cannot just walk in or out the building unnoticed.
There are I think, two toilets and maybe four showers? But we never had to wait for either of these.
Everywhere was very clean, a lounge room and tv area, a kitchen area with hot/cold water, microwave etc, and table and stools.
The wifi was really good. And as others have said, the 7 eleven is almost next door and the food court is close. We had a good meal in the nearby restaurant.
It's a stones throw from the cultural village which had the rainforest music festival happening while we were there. Without the festival on, it would probably be a very quiet place to stay.
It's close to the beach for a paddle and sunset views.
There is an office near the 7 eleven where you can book some boat tours, but we booked ours through Permai resort which is close by.
The staff were all cheerful and helpful.
I would definitely stay there again, and as I first said, I wish there were more 'Bunkers' in other towns??!!! - Especially of this standard??!! Thanks guys!!
