    Really enjoyed staying here. I ended up being on an unpowered site, but lots of friends in the rooms, and was in a couple of the dorm rooms. Everything you could want. Prices are a bit lower because there’s less tourist at the moment, meaning it was good value

    I’ve stayed here many times and it’s always great!!! However this last time a drunk idiot was aggressively smashing at my door at around 1:00am looking for his friend. This is also not the first time some idiot has done something like this…… my 20 girlfriend freaked the hell out and I needed to go outside in my underwear to scream at this moron to get away from my door…. To which took me 10 minutes to scare him away after he persisted that this was the right room. I was in a private room :-//

    Beautiful hostel, rooms were okay but some bathrooms didn't have any extractor so would steam quickly but the ensuit is great. Kitchen is disgusting, no utensils for the size of the hostel.

    Our room door would not lock and we got moved to another room, this room door was extremely difficult to lock too, so we did not feel that our belongings were secure. The place was a bit run down, we thought due to covid. Could have been cleaner and there was a lot of bug around. Location was perfect and it was inexpensive, ok for one night or on a budget.
