The room was really small, literally the bed and a small space around it to walk around, and the bathroom was stupidly small - you couldn't open the door because the sink was in the way so you had to squeeze your way around (luckily we were both slim enough for this!)
The water hot water tank exploded in the night and we had no hot water for a shower the next day, although this could happen anywhere I suppose. Then during the next night we didn't have any cold water but this was 'turned on' again by the morning. When i mentioned this to the owners they didn't offer an apology although they were very sorry about the exploding water tank.
The owners were helpful enough but not really around much to offer help and advise. The location was pleasant by the river although this didn't smell great as clearly contains run off from the town and sprays used on nearby wineyards. its walking distance from the town (about 10 minutes). The plunge pool is very very cold which I suppose is OK on a really really hot day but otherwise a bit pointless. It is a backpackers so I suppose you shouldn't expect luxury but I don't believe its very good value.
