    The girl on the front desk was very nice and friendly to deal with. And most importantly the room was clean and the toilets.

    Was pleasantly surprised with the hostel. For the price, room was spacious and fairly clean other than the shower which wasn't too clean and lacked hand wash gel. Hostel itself is large and has plenty of space to relax. A quiet hostel with not too much going on in terms of atmosphere and events. Had a good location near the city centre and clubs. Security was pretty lacking with anyone able to walk but at night a security code was needed. Kitchen was small but overall I recommend staying here.

    The first room I was put in was dirty and stank and was full of long termers, so we requested to change rooms which the staff reluctantly allowed. The second room was so much nicer with a huge balcony and nice view at sunset! It was also full of other lovely travellers and I made some great friends there. The facilities were great - swimming pool, bar, restaurant, table tennis, pool, surfboards & bikes to hire. The atmosphere at the hostel was a bit dead though, didn’t have a community feel like other hoste

    Great location and nice pool area, however it wasn’t the cleanest hostel and the kitchen wasn’t great. Lock on the shared bathroom door sometimes didn’t work.

    It’s a fairly old place, booked a 12 bed and it had an ensuite but the whole sink was blocked and overfilled, the lockers had mould in them. No other toilet we could find as the kitchen was closed at night. We ended up leaving early.

    BACKPACKERS IN PARADISE????? DO NOT STAY HERE The room was filthy, no AC and the fan did not work. Disgusting bathroom, a leak from the ceiling on top of toilet and shower. When we spoke to reception about it they laughed in our faces saying this is what we get for the cost and that we should leave but they won’t give us a refund.

    Backpackers in hell DO NOT STAY HERE! Firstly the staff are beyond rude. We had a 4 bed ensuite room, there was a leak on the ceiling above the toilet and when complained to staff about this they laughed and said it’s what you get for what you pay, when mentioning other hostels closer to the centre are only $5 a night they said go stay there then. DISGUSTINGLY dirty as a hole. Bathroom gross. Rooms unbearable heat with a broken fan as aircon. Pool area was ok.
