Easy search for accommodation, Easy bookings, Easy payments and the Easiest WIN ever! Thank you soooo much for the great service and the wonderful prize!
- Natasha Luxon

I really enjoyed staying at Barefoot Backpackers Cabins. Steve & his staff were really friendly and helpful and he arranged transport for me to and from Gallagher Convention Centre as I am normally dependent on public transport or my hosts. My stay there was like home away from home, with a country feeling in the midst of a busy city with fruit trees and a beautiful garden. The accommodation is really affordable and I appreciate that, as I'm a person that just need a place to sleep, nothing fancy with a bath or a shower to freshen up.

I enjoyed my stay, very well priced
