This is a great Hostel located in a very good part of town, very close to the markets and close to many good places to eat. Its very quiet at night witch is great and there's an awesome rooftop table and chairs that's an awesome place to sit at and watch the town below. I was very impressed with how clean the bathrooms where and hot showers where amazing. The free breakfast is a little too basic but it is free so cant complain there.
My only problem was it is right next to a busy road. If you are a light sleeper make sure you have ear plugs. It is within walking distance of the waterfront where there are plenty of restaurants and bars.
Located smack bang in the strip where all the pubs are-so if you want to party you have come to the right spot!
I loved my stay here, in fact I kept coming back! I was always made to feel welcome, the hostel is very conveniently placed for the city and the bus and taxi station and the showers are very good which I have found is rare. The place is clean with iron, hair dryer, luggage room, loads of travel info and free use of desktop computer. It was like home from home.
