THE OPEN AIR BAR
We are in the tropics, so naturally the bar at our guest house is open sided. It has a roof, of course!
We are offering guests local beers and mixes, soft drinks, snacks, and a pleasant place to relax with friends and other guests.
Tea and coffee are freely available at all times.
Right: a guest enjoys a chat with staff in the reception lounge.
FOOD - SNACKS AND SIMPLE MEALS AVAILABLE AT THE BAR
Next to the bar is the kitchen where we prepare simple food with a local flavor which is available all day at very moderate prices.
AIRPORT TRANSFERS - K10
We pick up booked guests at the airport and drop off guests at the end of their stay. The fare is a modest K10 per person.
We provide free transport for guests to the nearby Takubar beach (dependent on the availability of vehicles) and K10 transport to Kokopo.
Alternatively, guests can use the local buses. The #8 minibus stops 50 meters from our gate. It takes you anywhere in Takubar and along the Kokopo road up to the Kokopo market in the center of town for 70 toea (=30 cents).
On the return journey, just ask the driver to bring you to the Kokopo Backpackers Inn and he will oblige.
If there are lots of passengers around, it might be a bit of a crush, but hey, this is real life in Kokopo and Rabaul, and you get transport and a taste of real life in the Islands for only 70 toea. What a bargain! :)
Rooms are serviced daily. If you have special requirements in this respect, e.g. sleeping late, please let our maid know.
We do guests' laundry at a small extra charge. Ask the maid servicing your room.
BOOK IN, BOOK OUT
If you have booked and not paid in advance, we will hold your room until 6pm unless you advise us of a later arrival time. So long as we are open, we will take new bookings! About 10pm would be the time we close down on ordinary days.
Booking out is 10am unless you have made prior arrangements for a late departure.
