    Moved here from nomads hostel. Great atmosphere downstairs, the room was lovely and spacious was just quite hot with no fan upstairs. Free dinner every night was a bonus! Security were very strict.

    We loved Aquarius, bar and pool area great with bonus of free dinner! Our private room was basic but good size with balcony overlooking the bar/pool area. The only let down was no aircon, so the room was extremely hot. There was a fan but it was essentially useless as couldn’t feel any type of breeze from it. Aircon or a decent fan would make the stay perfect. Would definitely stay again though :)

    Loved the place, free dinner was a nice bonus. Dorm room was very spacy, the floors weren't that clean and there was a lot of sand but well, with 8 people in the room there's really a lot you can do. The location was perfect, the pick-up service from bus station was nice. All in all one of my favorite hostels.
