    Close to the beach & town, nice bar/pool area, fun events on every night! Bathroom was pretty gross, the AC was a joke, && there isn’t free wifi in the rooms. They have a travel agent at reception which is super helpful in planning trips & such. Overall fun place with fun people!

    We really enjoyed our two-day stay at Aquarius, there was a really nice atmosphere and lots of cool places to hang out. Kitchen and facilities were lovely. Only downside to our stay was how hot our room got, we were in a 10-bed and the air-con was basically non-existent, advised not to open the window but ended up having to in order to make sleeping more bearable. Other than that, we had a fab time and would stay again.

    Great location, good price, drinks are a good price too, only problem is some staff are quite rude, the kitchen/ dinning area closes at 10pm but we had no notice of this, was very rudely moved out before we even finished. But hay not all staff are bad. Rooms could of done with a good sweep floors dirty:(

    Fabulous

    This hostel is centrally located, there is free dinner every night- the food is not the best but it's edible, and some sort of event at the bar. There's also 2 onsite restaurants which are really good and decently priced. Definitely a party hostel, If you like to just chill at night, theres not really a good place for that. The rooms are really spacious, but the security is not great. the people in our room, who seemed to live there, never locked the door, but it didn't bother me too much.

    Very Good

    The facility itself is absolutely class, unfortunately it was just massively let down by the fact that virtually all of the staff, except the guy at reception and woman on the activities desk, were absolute d**ckheads - particularly the 2 english guys working behind the bar (one pretty big guy and the other big and V tall). I’m not sure if the 2 lads were informed that working in hospitality meant actually smiling from time to time and not being rude and short with people but evidently not.

    When you want to party the whole stay, it is the right hostel for you. When you want to chill or sleep well it is not the right one for you.

    Good

    No air con in room, 1 fan above beds for 9 people, it was so hot. However, good activities in evening. The lock on the door in our dorm had been broken for almost a week before we arrived and was only fixed when we raised the issue. Don’t expect much of the free dinners - but then a free dinner is a free dinner. Staff were strict about everything and not overly accommodating. Location 10/10.

    Terrible. There’s a security guard who’s supposed to make sure only guests get into the rooms but around midnight there was a girl in my room talking about how she’s not staying here and the guard just let her past, so what’s the point? Housekeeping came in blasting music around 10am. People were still sleeping. When I asked the staff for a blanket I was told “well there should be one on your bed” there wasn’t so? Didn’t really have any good interactions with staff. I felt really unwelcome tbh..

    The worst hostel I’ve ever stayed in. Absolutely disgusting place. Bathrooms are cleaned twice a day and somehow still full of dirt and mould. Significant amount of roaches and dead bugs in the rooms. Full of long termers whose stuff is in piles across the rooms. I stayed in 2 rooms with these issues. Staff are rude and unhelpful, especially in the bar. Free dinners are the hostels only redeemable quality. Would not recommend to anyone. I also stayed in Byron’s nomads which was much better.
