We had a room in block 11. The water pump for the entire block must be broken as every use of shower or sinks made incredible noise. Even if people in other rooms in the block used their water, the noise came out of our sink/pipe. This continuous noise woke us up on a regular basis so we basically had a sleepless night. We won't stay again.

I stayed two nights in two different rooms. The first room was below average and the second room was slightly better. It's a large hostel covering lots of ground and feels more like camp grounds. No free wifi. No lockers in the room. Both bathrooms had a sewage-like smell.
All the facilities are dirty, the beds are very uncomfortable, the showers didn't work in the room. We were told to shower near the kitchen everyday because they weren't going to fix the showers. The staff is so rude, the worst I've encountered traveling. I would never recommend staying here!!!!
extra fee for storage room only plates available in kitchen, cutlery and mugs available at front desk good late arrival service
Great location and very clean rooms. Only big issue was the kitchen which people seemed to leave in a tip. Felt sorry for the staff coming in to do the dishes...
Only stayed here one night. Communal room is very small despite the number of guests.
Room was really dirty. Kitchen was bad. It was always too cold there. Waiting in the reception to ask something took ages.. should be more staff there. Location was really good, at the end of the main street but everything was close. Night security was really helpful at 2am when there was a huntsman spider in my room. Nice pool and nice mango trees. If you go on a boat trip, they say you have to pay $6 for luggage storage, but in the kitchen area there are also lockers for $4 which is big enough
The worst place I have ever stayed! Avoid at all costs. Was booked in a four bed dorm, was put in a six bed dorm, then an hour or so later two girls arrived and they decided to bring along 8 friends from a previous trip. Had to move to a private room where the air con was light, half the light bulbs didn't work and it was all round scummy. Only positive is the location. Got no apology when I asked to switch. Just got a 'how would you like to pay for that'?
The hostel is not good to meet people, it's too big. Staff isn't really helpfull and the kitchen is way too small for the amount of backpackers staying at the hostel. Other hostels are definetily better! Don't go!
Great hostel. Would be nice to have some lockers in the rooms, though.
air con was broken, shower and stove was not in a good condition.
Nice accomodation in individual houses. Staff, however, could try to be a little more helpful when asked for information and help..
