from backpackers to guesthouse ...

We arrived in Kingscote in November 2016, ready to take over the KI Central Backpackers.


In addition to learning the ropes of running an accommodation facility, absorbing as much information about KI as possible and understanding the workings of Online Travel Agencies, we spent time observing how our guests interacted with the space. We talked to them to find out, if we were to make improvements, what would they like to see. We also considered what we look for in accommodation when we travel.


KI Dragonfly Guesthouse is definitely a work in progress, however, this is what we have achieved so far ...

Kitchen/Lounge & Hall undergoes MAJOR facelift

The dormitory becomes a spacious Family Room

The family room becomes a Deluxe Queen

Double rooms get an upgrade

A Private room becomes the Share Room (4-bed Dorm)

From 'Garden Cabin' to 'Rori's Retreat'

The exterior makeover begins ... (still much more to do!)
