    Very Good

    I wouldn’t recommend more than a night or two in this hostel unless you are looking for a party. There were lots of people who had been these for long periods of time who just got drunk etc every night. It was hard to socialise due to this. The facilities were clean and staff were helpful though.

    The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, however the rooms are very basic with no air con and very limited plug sockets. Shower areas were relatively clean, the place could just do with some updating

    The staff was very friendly and relaxed, they helped wherever they could and were very communicative. But a big fat minus is the hygiene of the bathrooms and the kitchen. In the morning there was at least no rubbish left or so, but there was pee on every toilet seat and dirty dishes everywhere in the kitchen. Both should be cleaned way more often and not just superficially.

    Very basic so felt over priced. Tiny kitchen with barely any room to cook and was dirty every time we went in. We stayed in a twin room which had one small fan that didn’t even make a difference basically just gently blew hot air around and didn’t reach the beds. The common area is very loud. However it’s easily walking distance to the beaches, it was ok as a place to stay for just a couple of nights but wouldn’t want to stay any longer
