Elephant Backpacker is located 5 minutes from the city centre and is easily accessed by bus and train. We offer no frills style accommodation for budget conscious guests. Breakfast is included in your room tariff and there is a communal kitchen should you wish to cook and eat. The building has a lift and caters for disabled guests. We are not a party hostel and do not permit alcohol nor smoking in the building. We are cheap and basic and our rate reflects this so if you are looking for something flash and ritzy we are not suitable for you.
