You pay what you get
Only for sleep is okay. The room and carpet in front of bedroom were dirty. The location is perfect and I do love the special meal in the night.

Good location and entertainment
Cheap accommodation, clean rooms and discounted food and drink at the bar. Luggage storage for $6 while you are awy on a Whitsundays tour. Brilliant location. Something on at the bar Every night but quite enough to be able to sleep.

Fair price to stay
Cheap accommodation and supper, not for backpackers looking for quietness.
Private rooms are good, close to free WiFi provided by the bar nearby.
