We have never stayed at a backpackers so didn't know what to expect but it was really wonderful. Very peaceful with the pool area being a particular oasis - great place for a G&T at the end of the day (or mid-afternoon!!) We stayed in the cottage which was very private and clean. It also sleeps four so we had lots of space. Would give this place 5 stars but have marked it down due to the plumbing - not the best shower in the world but this was in a water-stressed area. Great service from Ilze and Ivan - very helpful.
