We were treated very well and the hospital staff were extremely helpful and knowledgable about the local area. Would definitely return again. A very pleasant experience.

Awesome! I so much more than what I expected! The price is , the beach close, the owner is involved, and the pool and pool table are great placesto meet people! The dorm is great, accept for the 4 person AC rule which was a drag.

We scheduled a taxi for 3am, but the taxi never showed. The staff told us we didn't reserve a taxi and blamed us for their lack of accountability. By the time we got a taxi we were so late to the airport that we missed our plane and returned to the hostel to stay until our rescheduled flight. Castle House claimed that they were "full" and wouldn't let us stay even though we knew our friends were the only ones still in the room. Horrible experience resulting from a horrible staff.

when you asked how much a taxi would cost , i told you 900 + 200 night charges, , and you said we will let you know , at about 9 pm .u didnt book a taxi. and you also said that you have already paid for the taxi , which never happens here , customer pays direct to the taxi , now we didnt give beds next day to you and your friend and also to two local boys because of compalain about stealing, so no risk,, we hav best staff,facilities,food,swimmg pool,and security comes first , money comes later


Thank you so much for taking such good care of us during our stay. We cannot thank you enough. Do not change a thing 😊

A great stay, particularly the friendly bar staff and thepool I will be back!


Ended up just chilling by the pool here, the location is just by the 'strip', wasn't as serene as I thought it would be. Excellent food and service though.


Really liked this place, good location, staff were very helpful and friendly. Bar area and pool area was really nice and the atmosphere on the night was also nice. Tandoori night with live music on Fridays is good. Cheap local buses nearby to get around.
