    The place is really good! It is very clean, the kitchen is big and has everything we need. However it is a calm place, without an atmosphere to meet people.

    I booked a double bed private which turned out to be a caravan booking. Booking website need to update the room descriptions so not to mislead future customers. Other than that, we had a great time

    Lady on front desk was lovely. Rooms were clean and tidy and cool. The walkway to the male showers were a bit dated and cobwebby! But the pool was lovely. So clean and so fresh. Didn’t use the kitchen but it looked big enough and well stocked!

    As a lone female traveler I didn’t feel the most comfortable as much as security was concerned however I had no problems with anyone there. I was in a room on my own as it isn’t high season and not a weekend. Staff very nice and helpful.

    For the price, I was really unimpressed. Check in did not go well, as the front desk couldn't tell me where my room was and forgot to mention that all cooking equipment has to be checked out separately.

    The "hostel" is in a trailer park, which was impossible to find, room was humid and felt like it should be condemned. Useable for one night. The hostel has printed in big bold letters that approximately says "no refunds for early checkout" so I feel as if they are aware of these issues.

    I have stayed in many backpacker locations around the world, but this was up there as one of the poorer experiences. Cabin was left unlocked as key not working. Cabin had a musty, funky smell. Did not meet any staff during my stay as I checked in late. Not a very communal atmosphere. Shower pressure quite low. Normally YHA hostels are great, however on this occasion I have lost some of my confidence in them going forward.
