Cold and small room, not very cosy hostel, no own beer allowed, kitchen closes at night. Nothing really bad but you get more for your money in other hostels

The Banana staff are very sorry you left us feeling this way Martin. Bananas always tries to offer value for money - and as our records show you booked and paid for a 9 share room and were upgraded to a 4 share. Also let Bananas suggest you always ask the local hostel staff where to park your car so next time you avoid tickets for illegal parking. Happy Travels


Great hostel. The layout of the plave makes you feel like your in Thailand or somewhere! Great facilities for guests. Location isn't amazing but within walking distance to the city... and right beside some shops and restaurants. Only negative is that there's only one shower and toilet on each level. Could do with more. And more plug sockets.

Great place. The location's not perfect, but it gives the hostel a nice common area. People in the hostel are very friendly. The rooms are good. The only disadvantage is expensive wifi.


Good Hostel with nice Chef, he really cared for us, even waking me up, when i forgot to check out. Thanks for that!
