It was a fun place to stay!


The good thing about this hostel was the kitchen, it was well equipped and very clean and the rest was also pretty good. But the beds was terrible, I got one 5 inch mattress and it was like sleeping in a big hole, it was so uncomfortable. If you really need a good sleep then pick another hostel. But on the other, it was very easy to meet people


Staff very helpfull. Great option of shuttle to town or supermarket. Good size of kitchen.


Dirty and messy rooms, the whole house and especially the kitchen must have seen better days already. Far away from the city centre but free shuttle every hour and nice staff.


No air conditioning and my room didn't have a window either - it was like a sauna! They did provide a fan but it just moved the hot air around. The place is quite old and a bit rickety and dirty.


Keep it up. Especially the shuttle service.

The freindly, helpful and well organised staff makes the difference at this place. Its a huge hostel and sadly the long term staying people making a mess and think its there own room/kitchen. Hourly bus service into the city with several stops, plus pick-up at the busstation.


Very dirty hostel - Kitchen, toilets and floors were not clean. Showers were gross! (Even for a hostel!) Stayed in an internal room, no windows = HOT! Would not recommend this hostel


Showers and toillets were hard to find (no signs or anything). Furthermore, the showers where dirty (cockroaches). The complementery shuttle bus was nice.


Pretty good hostel on the whole. My room was a mess and I struggled to find anywhere to put my backpack, but that's more the fault of others in the room than the hostel! Other than that had a pleasant enough stay with nothing to complain about.


Basic, but the staff were friendly and it was very clean. Great very for money.
