Good 7.2 From 26 reviews

Fair 4.0
Cleanliness leaves a lot to be desired
I arrived and none of the beds in the dorm were made - the dirty sheets from previous guests were still crumpled up on all the beds and there was a trash can full of rubbish that hadn't been emptied. Floors hadn't been vacuumed. Had to ask at reception to get fresh sheets and a bed made. Sheets, doonas and pillows and curtains are SUPER OLD. Like from the 80s/90s :( Please use pillowcase protectors on your pillows - they only put a flimsy old pillowcase over a gross dirty old oil-stained pillow. Place is generally cluttered. All doors were locked at reception the next morning and my keys didn't work to get in and check out.

Comfortable, clean and quiet. The shared facilities provided any of the extras that we wanted. Villa Backpackers Lodge has a nice ambiance.
