We were told that we can lock away our luggage (suitcases) we hat due to the flight - but there was no such service :(

Good hostel. Reception and the bar close a little early, 8.00 p.m. and 10.30 p.m. respectively.


The staff was great, very helpful, friendly, and ready to take the extra step to serve us.

The private ensuite room we had was fine except for the shower, hardly any water came out, we ended up filling bottles from the sink tap and using those. Also the 'hot' water was the same temperature as the cold and despite asking reception staff several times if this was usual, it was not resolved. A fish we ate one evening was cooked to a cinder. Otherwise everything was very good. Particular praise to the driver Moy who is a star. A
