    Would recommend this hostel to anyone!!! Perfect for people who love to party, and also those who don’t! We loved it so much we ended up staying 6 nights in total. Kris is the best chef and so so helpful from helping us with our buses to organising trips & advice on best night life around the area. and a special shout out for the Pesto Pasta dish, truly amazing! Free breakfast was delish. Beds were comfy & bonus points for there being USB ports on each bed. Showers/toilets were clean!

    I loved this hostel! The staff was so so good and fun to hang out with. The rooms are secure and beds are clean. There was a problem with the showers but they fixed it quickly. The only problem was there were so many mosquitoes in the dorms at night that I would wake up with tons of bites. If they get mosquito nets, it would be perfect.

    The people who work and stay at this hostel make it worth it! The staff is friendly and easy to hang with, the crowd seems chill/backpackerish. The location is alright - a 5/10 min grab to old town really but there are some cool spots nearby and good food as well. The curtains were helpful, albeit sometimes not so functional. There were 2 free breakfast options until 10:30 am which was helpful - enough to get ya at the door at least. Pool was fun! And Turkish the puppy was the crown jewel!

    Very Good

    Difficult review. Staff were really nice but the hostel itself was a bit of a let down. Showers; Either too hot or too cold. Actual shower stalls were small and bathroom stalls even smaller. Bedroom lockers are an absolute gem best I've come across if I'm honest however request a middle or top bunk. If you get the bottom bunk it's like a rabbit hutch. Liberally. Poor Wi-Fi connection in rooms. Pool was nice, breakfast is served promptly and hostel is in a nice area.
