Inexpensive Private Room for Couples
Halo hostel is a good option for couples travelling. The rooms are small, but have storage space, individual bathrooms and are clean. The area is really good if you want convenience. Walkable to the downtown area and jetty. Breakfast is made to order eggs, toast, fruit and coffee. My only con is that it does get a bit loud at night from surrounding bars, so just bring ear plugs.

Decent budget hostel
A decent stay for those on a budget. The rooms are not cleaned and towels are not changed. But there is breakfast included and the owners are nice people. The location is good to walk to any of the city's malls.
