Safe haven for a solo traveller”

Great and very safe facilities for a solo female traveller. The staff was fantastic and would help you with any issues that might arise. It's very camping/fringe mentality in August but if that's what you want, it's the perfect place to stay and meet very creative and interesting people. Straight bus connection to city centre. More than value for money.
