    The shuttle bus to and from the city and the airport is an excellent service. We were very impressed with how frequently it went.

    We realise that backpackers accommodation is likely to have late night music/drinking however, with our room so close to the bar, we were not able to sleep until 1am at the earliest. Alot of people staying would have arranged to go on early tours etc. as we did which meant a very interrupted nights sleep. Such a shame really as the bar area was quite nice. Rooms should not be directly facing it especially within 10 metres!!!
