I loved the place as whole but water was cold in the morning when i took a shower. No toilet papers at night. Tents are also far from the toilets.

Monzi Safari Backpackers is tidy, staff is amazing (they even wash your dishes!) and I loved the tents! I was a bit suspicious at the beginning how it works to sleep in a tent when temperatures outside are low. But it was warm an cosy. Love the lounge, the pool, the kitchen, the location of the backpackers - anytime again!
