The staff was extremely accommodating. My flight was delayed by more than 2 hours and they were more than willing to stay past 12am to sign me in. This was really amazing as i was worried i would be homeless.

Backpacker Connection is Close to the airport, they offer Airport Shuttles which are really cheap. The staff is very friendly, we had a fun evening ans they invited me for Barbecue. They even helped me to find my way to the next accommodation because I drove from the Airport the next day. They gave me a Lot of Tips and advice. I can really recommend staying there!
