No 24 hour staff so sometimes no one around to help. No screens on windows so mossies fly in and bite. Many working holidayers that make a mess and don't clean up. Free wifi which is nice, but dorm prices are very high. Good place to stay for a few nights. Big kitchen and fridge to use.


Very comfy beds, spacious dorm, friendly staff
