Pros - Beds were comfortable, hot showers, bar and pool. Cons - Front desk controlled AC and hot shower times, Staff not helpful or friendly, all windows opened during day which feels unsecure As backpackers, our plans changed while we were here, but even though we gave them over 48 hours notice, they still wouldnt refund us. They blamed hostelworld, but their policy doesnt help people whose plans change. Staff wasnt helpful and uninterested in helping us w/ plan changes . Wouldnt recommend.

It was all pretty good, good central location friendly staff. A window in the room that you could open would have been nice to not have to have the Ac on all the time.

Great hostel, comfy spacious dorms with hot water showers & good wifi. Pool area is nice too and the bar/restaurant area has lots of comfy seats for relaxing. So great value for money room and facilities wise. Food & drinks a bit pricier - food is in the $6-8 bracket but it's close to town for other options.
