In later years it was painted green and known as the Green Hansom. In more recent times it became a backpackers lodge called “The Purple Turtle”, with a bar & nightclub with the same name on the ground floor. The building was painted pink circa 2000, and then purple in 2011.
The building currently (2020) displays no name and is painted grey. No longer a backpackers lodge, it offers longer-term rental accommodation. The “Purple Turtle” bar/club still exists. There is now also a small supermarket on street level.
