I thoroughly enjoyed my time in St Francis! I usually worry about showers (shower head and water temperature) at such places. I must say I had a good shower! The lighthouse and trail walk was a great recommendation from the host. Breakfast at Rambling Rose (a walking distance away) was gooooood! Not forgetting St Francis craft beer spot downstairs! Loved it! They also have this hot “homemade” source that will keep you coming back for more :) The town is welcoming and really serious about service

My husband and I stayed one night in a double room. We are in our late 60s so were a bit apprehensive about booking into a backpackers which we expected to be very hostel-like. Everything was 100%. Couldn't have been more comfortable and private. Rikki-Leigh is a very friendly and helpful host. We\ll be back and have already recommended it to others.

We have stayed at many backpackers on our trip and this one was by far the best value for money. The room was super spacious and the bed was really comfortable with crisp white linen. It is also in a great location.

We went on a last minute surf trip o catch the swell and this place was just perfect for us. There was space for our boards on the balcony and it was so central we didn't even need our car. Thanks for the great stay

Loved the stay, I especially loved how central it was, everything was just a short walk away. From the golf course to the beach and the restaurants which were just a couple flights of stairs away. Really a pleasant experience
