Best ten person dorm every. So large you didn't feel like there was 10 people in your room. Great vibe and pool area as well. Close to everything.

Awesome hostel in such a good location. I was told it was the party hostel and even though there were things happening every night it also had a nice chilled vibe. Will definitely stay here again!

Aquarius was really cool - nice layout with lots of social space. The vibe during the day was kind of quiet, nobody socialising really. Evening was really fun, free dinners is such a bonus and a lot more social! The rooms are nice, we stayed in an 8 bed mixed with ensuite. Ensuite was always clean and really nice. Balcony was nice touch, we got a really nice room on the bottom floor. The fan didn't really do a lot so had to keep doors open overnight. Doors always left open. Staff helpful

Great location, great staff, worst security in rooms as door is left wide open but there are lockers. Wifi was down while I was there but they sorted this quickly by giving people the paid one for free. Would stay again!

Free meal every night was awesome and they had a bar to get your drinks. They were missing the basics though. No air con meant you struggled to sleep and the common area was boiling. The free wifi was only available in the bar and it didn't work for half the time I was there. Good hostel overall though

Amazing hostel! The best location and really good atmosphere. Free suppers a massive bonus and everyone is around then so easy to meet people. Staff at reception were fine- not overly friendly But knowledgable. Rooms pretty standard. Really nice outside area in the rooms as well as by the bar- great pool as well. Security guards all night so felt v safe. Would definitely stay here again!

THIS HOSTEL IS FAB! So close to everything, such a friendly vibe and the staff are so friendly! Kitchen facilities were decent and so was the night time entertainment! Please give the jelly wrestling a watch 😂 Having free meals every night was an added bonus to the trip, especially if you're trying to save money!
