Thank you to the Backpacker for an outstanding experience at your facility. The helpful staff were the first impressive note to make. The setting and the other cool travellers made it even more enjoyable. The charity work you guys do touched me, and i wish you all the best of luck. Cant wait till the next time ?!!

Thanks to you - as we say we have the best job in the world meeting all the coolest people!!! Hope you will come and volunteer for a couple of hours at the GCU garden situated at Woodlands Primary School the next time you come. WE could always do with some extra hands when weeding. Kind regards The Backpack Team
