4, 6, 8 and 10 Bed Dorms
All king-sized single beds and some rooms have balconies. The ensuite bathrooms can be used three ways (doors separating the shower, toilet and vanity) so there's none of the difficulties regularly experienced with too few communal facilities.

Deluxe 4 and Superior 6 Bed
These are hotel style rooms with your own private balcony, fridge, TV, hair-dryer. Great for small groups travelling together or a way to pamper yourself and avoid big crowds. Luxury at an affordable price. *Please contact us directly if you would prefer to book this option.

Hotel Rooms (King/Twin Deluxe)
For those seeking a bit more comfort and privacy, our hotel rooms (twin or king) come complete with your own bar fridge, TV, coffee/tea, hair-dryer, lounge and some have private balconies, yet they still carry a budget price tag with all the extras.
