                  We have enjoyed our stay at George Backpackers this December.The rooms were very neat and clean - and offered all of what wasneeded for our stay. Would recommend it to all.

                  A centrally located safe and secure place. I slept at ease at night. I really liked how clean the place was. The room I slept in was absolutely clean and cozy. It was really peaceful and I enjoyed it. The staff were quite friendly and that is important. I will recommend this backpackers to anyone.

                  What more can I say that the word \impeccable\" hasnt said already?I would definitely return anytime to George backpackers not because its George Backpackers but because the quality of their service is of top grade. I remember being dropped off by my lift- he asked why are you sleeping at a backpackers- and from this reaction I knew what he was insinuating because in the same sentence he was telling me about resorts
