Loved this place and the staff. They were so friendly and helpful especially when I needed an early check-in....thanks Joe! For the price you pay it's great value for money and would definitely stay here again. Some of the rooms need a bit of tlc but it was nothing too major. :)

Cheap and clean , 16 $ a night for a 4bedrooms. The Staff is helpful and nice The 4$bbq is great WiFi little bit expensive for the first day 7$ but the other days it's 2$ and it's work fast!!.


Cheap dorm room, but worth the extra couple dollars to upgrade to a room with air conditioning. Ask for the room with single beds.


This place with a few upgrades could be a gold mine. I can only say about the room i stayed in so not sure about the dorms as i was in a private. The rooms are very basic which is fine but the mattress was so old that it was just laying on hard springs to tell the truth, no air con, did have a ceiling fan but that just moved around the very hot air. Had to pay to store our bags the day we left .Mika though was an amazing person, He really did make the stay there much more entertaining.
