    BIG Backpackers

    BIG Backpackers is very homey-it really does feel like a home away from home. The location is really good and the staff are really cool. They have 2 nights where they take groups out on the town. The only downside is the breakfast is really basic.

    Stayed 2 nights in Sep 2018
