    Best and cleanest hostel I have stayed in through all my travels!

    The layout was a big crammed and one person's drawer/locker pulled out to where the door was opening. The windows were big and let a lot of light and air into the room. We were there just after a heatwave, so it wasn't too hot in the room, but if it were extreme heat outside it would've been miserable bc no AC. Also disappointed with the socialness because the outside patio bar was closed, so people kept to themselves in the hostel. The bathro were very clean and nice. Weird showerhead through.

    I stayed there at high season, so was very expensive but it is close to the beach and old town. So a great location. The place is clean but lacks atmosphere.

    This is more of a hotel than a hostel. Extremely clean, good privacy, great location and modern building. Suited us well as a couple. No air conditioning in the bedrooms - stiflingly hot at night in summer. I wouldn’t recommend for solo travellers looking to make friends - no organised activities and people don’t really use the shared spaces!

    Great location and a very clean and spacious hostel. Really good lockers, comfortable beds with lamps and charging points. Shared bathrooms clean and good facilities. It was very hot to stay in over summer, there's no air conditioning or even any fans in the rooms. Also there wasn't a lot of atmosphere, there's a common area but there didn't seem to be much of a social energy or any organised activity. This did mean it was nice and quiet to sleep in, so depends what is important to you.

    Very Good

    17 Jul 2022
    Beds were comfy and bunks were stable. Bathrooms were clean and nice. Staff weren’t overly friendly, and the bar was only open on thurs - sat nights and there wasn’t much of a hostel atmosphere. There was also no air conditioning and it was extremely hot trying to sleep at night time. The staff did put fans in our room but being in a top bunk I didn’t feel any different. Good location and pretty roof top.

    It was good but had hope that it was more social atmosphere. The beds are good and there is a big locker under the beds that can be lock with the door key. Location is good walking distance to the old town streets. And easy when you arrive and depart the place. Toilets and bath are kept clean the problem is that not all guest know how to leave the bath and toilet clean after themself.

    No atmosphere, no activities, staff not friendly (except 2 or 3) and no AC. There’s a bar on the patio only open for a few day but open for everybody not just the hostel. Feel like a hotel. The kitchen is awful just a microwave and toaster so you can’t cook. Not for travellers who want a nice ambiance and meet people

    Whilst this hostel to the eye May seem like it would be fantastic. The curfew and the strict rules coupled with the lack of aircon in the bedrooms makes this place unbearable. Throughout our stay, me and my friends had to sleep on the floor or with the bedroom door open as it was close to impossible to sleep in the rooms which felt two too three times hotter than outside, and without the aircon some of us rathered to sleep on the beach than in the room.

    Not worth the price. No atmospehere at all. No common areas for people to longue and most of all, rooms are so warm that I was not able to sleep at all the entire time I was there. No fan or AC. Bathrooms do not even have shelves to place touletries while showering. Only good rhing the location. I have stayed in far better histels in a much cheaper price. Book only if you don't have any other choice.
