The location was PERFECT. We drove and it was a bit hard to find at first seeing that it looks like it's in a alley way plus we were driving at night but the staff were marvellous at guiding us over the phone. If you are looking to stay at a quiet hostel DO NOT stay here. This hostel is party central and since I'm a party person, I enjoyed every minute of it. I thought it was cool that every room had a balcony. The bathrooms however were not THAT clean & unisex but not the worse hostel bathroom

Thanks so much for leaving your positive feedback with us. We are stoked you enjoyed your stay and apologize immensely for the negative aspects of your stay. We try our best to keep our communal bathrooms to a high standard and have cleaners constantly monitoring them. We are so sorry that this was not the case during your stay despite the fact they are deep cleaned 3 times per day. Unfortunately on occasion some of our guests are not very well behaved and this affects others. See you soon!


We had a nice looking room with the sunset right at our balcony. Beds where comfortable and the staff was friendly and hospitable!

Thanks so much for your feedback legend :) we really appreciate the positive rating left online and would love to see you next time. Safe journey on your onward travels :)


Chill vibe, clean and big rooms. Just not enough space in the kitchen and really not clean at all. Cant imagine how it is in high season.

We are stoked you left your feedback with us and glad you enjoyed your stay!. We apologise for the inconvenience caused by our kitchen ! We clean the kitchen 4 times per day and close it down for deep cleaning for 2 hours per day during winter During the summer months we have staff doing clean checks hourly. We have signage and cameras in the kitchen to enforce backpackers to clean up after themselves but as the majority of travelers are in holiday mode they tend to forget! See you next time!
