Calypso Inn Backpackers Resort

The hostel was very dirty. The bathrooms were terrible and the shower was not cleaned during the 5 days that I was there. It is more of an outdoor hostel and the only thing that is somewhat sealed from the elements is the rooms but the doors and windows don't seal so expect bugs to get in the room. No TV room. The air conditioning was very good and the shuttle system is OK once you get the hang of it. 15 minute walk to city. Operated by backpackers who don't seem to have any over site.

The hostel was very clean, the showers and bathrooms were clean and plentiful as single rooms. There was a very large kitchen, utensils you can borrow for a deposit, and a TV room. They provide great lockers and a shelf with individual power outlets for each bed which is the best thing you will find. They even give you a towel. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful. FYI: They do put one girl with 3 guys in a mixed room. They do have a variety of ages in the hostel.

The hostel is reasonably clean. They have a towel in the showers but unless you are the first person they don't replace them. The staff doesn't know much about the city but do have ideas for things to see outside of it. It is pretty quite and not a party hostel even though there are a lot of young people. The TV room is great in the evenings. FYI: The desk doesn't open very early so if you have to check out early make sure you don't give them an ID that you need back.

Thanks for the review i have new staff training at the moment and they are all aware of what the city offers i have taken then on the tour myself to explain. I am sorry you felt they didn't offer much advice and will raise this with them in our next staff meeting. We have rubber mats in the showers as well as shower mats these normally don't need to be changed every time someone showers as it just traps excess water. 7.30am we open for check outs. safe travels to you happy new year!
