Artsy backpacker spot

What we say: 3.5 stars

The Peacock offers rows of fan-cooled bunks (at least two dozen in all) set in a large room in an old wooden house beside the bay. The room has wide timber floors and receives good air-flow thanks to openings on either side. There's also a four-bed air-con dorm in an enclosed room. Both rooms are mixed, so no women-only rooms, and each bunk bags you a small locker for valuables, reading lamp and electrical outlet. Some mattresses appeared thicker than others, so you might have a poke around before settling in. The ample cold-water shared bathrooms are reasonably clean and include blue basin sinks for a touch of style. An inviting bar and lounge area with a few guitars is found in the back of the building, though the view usually looks onto parked boats that are almost close enough to jump on. The whole hostel is decorated with murals of psychedelic peacocks between red flippers glued to the walls. The hostel is a one-minute stroll from the ferry pier, making this an obvious choice for an early departure. The social atmosphere makes Peacock a great spot to meet other backpackers.
