A special and unbelievable night, A wonderful talk, wish to come back again. Eye- selection! Should have a photo with you, Agra, thanks a lot for providing me a warm and comfortable place! Would recommend anyone come future should not miss the wonderful view in the morning through the window at living room.

The place is like home. Great views, walkable to everything. Agra is hospitable who goes out of her way to show you around town, the best places to eat, view penguins. Looking forward to staying again. Home away from home.

Agra was splendid upon arriving to Swaggers Backpackers. Even though we arrived when it was dark outside, she insisted on giving us a quick tour of Old Town in order to find the penguins. She even drove us in her sons car! The house is a quick walk down to the pier to see the penguins, a brewery, and many neat shops. The morning we checked out we even got breakfast at the local farmers market nearby (Sunday's only). The house is very beautiful with multiple dorm rooms and private rooms. The beds have heated blankets and there is unlimited wifi. There is a living room with a long sectional couch, TV, and a kitchen for cooking. There are multiple toilets as well as a shower. Agra was very kind and pleasant to talk to as she shared her experiences, especially of her traveling on the back of a motorcycle through the Mohave Desert! I highly recommend staying at Swaggers Backpackers. Most people pass by this city without staying, but I recommend staying at least one night to explore this unique city. There are many things to do and see that aren't mentioned on travel sites. Cheers!
