Sleeping Inn Backpackers Resort is situated about half a kilometre from the beach and a five minute or so walk from Cavill Avenue.
It offers the usual backpacker choice of bunk-bed equipped dorm rooms and low budget basic double/twin rooms, with shared bathrooms in apartment-style accommodation.
As the dorms/rooms are apartment-style they have their own kitchen facilities, instead of you having to share a single communal kitchen with absolutely everybody.
Female guests also get the option of female-only dorms. Dorms can be somewhat cramped but there is a decent amount of space in the lounge rooms for chilling out.
Facilities include an outdoor pool, BBQ area, book exchange, a games room, pool table and a cinema. There are also weekly all-you-can-eat pizza and BBQ nights which provide the perfect opportunity to fill-up for a low price.
Telephone to arrange the free pick-up service from the transit centre – in a limo, no less. The Tour Desk can help you with travel and activity questions, and there are nightly events on and off the premises.
Another decent option for backpackers, and the apartment style accommodation will be a plus for most guests.
