Good location (although its a bit of a walk to the beach, mainly uphill on the way back). Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Good breakfast.
The hostel is really nica and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful!
Really nice stay :) it takes just a few minutes to the shops
Stayed at the private twin room, very confortable. Commom area is ok. Breakfast was good. Staff was very helpful and friendly! Convienently near market e and some restaurants.
Far to walk to the beach specially because of the hill that makes the way back quite hard. Friendly staff and great offer of activities although the options were all pretty expensive.
High class hostel, only one of their staff is a lil bit over friendly. Asking for a lollipop from your client doesn't seem appropriate to me
Great place to stay but set back from town more than we expected. Still not to far to walk down to town or Central Beach but steep hills coming back. OK if you are fit or have no disability. Very clean facility with helpful signage and staff. Only bad factor that twin room was located next to two toilets and kitchen and thus noise issues from other guests could be problematic.. Taxi booked through hostel seemed a tad expensive.
Good clean place to stay but a steep walk downhill to town and central beach have to be borne in mind. Good wifi and helpful staff and owner. Only critcism is room we were given while not en-suite was close to two bathrooms and close to kitchen making noise from other guests an issue.
Definitely enjoyed my stay at Amakaya. Very nice staff, facilities and location, and also a very secure environment. We were given a recommendation for an excellent restaurant also (L
