Value for money
Still popular with backpackers, Okay Guesthouse offers 30 clean and spacious rooms and has done away with their old dorms.
They still offer a decent price for what’s on offer, especially in view of the location. All the rooms now have private bathrooms, and some have air-con. The difference between the $10 and $12 double rooms is a window on the outside world. Almost always busy with backpackers, this is a good meeting point, but doesn’t have the high energy party vibe of, say, the Mad Monkey or Top Banana. The large restaurant in front is always packed, whether it's to watch TV or to drink and hang out. Okay is a great place to meet like-minded travellers who like to share a beer and a spliff, but if you're not into the fast-friends backpacker scene and the noise and security issues that go with it, this isn't the place for you. The staff speak excellent English and keep advance bookings made over the phone.
