Latest Review

" Great hostel, has everything you need and in a really good location. Fun atmosphere with everyone pre-drinking together in the evenings. Only downside was that the showers are cold. This is fine in the daytime when it's hot but gili t gets colder in the evenings and cold showers were not fun "
