          Salty Crax staff were very friendly and helpful with good local knowledge. Casual hostel with large kitchen where you can cook your own dinner. Donatello the tortoise was also very cool as he walked around the back yard.

          Hi Elle Thank you for the question. Yes, we are quite busy, but not full at the moment so if any of your friends want to join we can still accommodate them :) Kind Regards Shona
