    Nice place, slightly awkward location and the free shuttle bus isn't particularly frequent. A fair few long term residents, but still a nice atmosphere.

    Lovely, warm and welcoming staff and it was so good to see somewhere with a huge fridge and clean bbq area. My only issue with this hostel or rather all YHA hostels is their "anti USP" of only providing free wifi in one room. If you want to have it in your room you have to pay a premium. This seems foolish as when (every) other hostel says free really does mean free wifi all over the property.

    Pricey for what you get and the facilities are very basic and could use work. For example, the women's bathroom did not have a soap dispenser (had a "sorry - broken" sign on it) and one of the toilets was missing a seat. I guess you pay for proximity to the airport, which it is conveniently close to, but not much else around the area without taking a short bus ride.

    I overheard the manager verbally abusing a disabled employee in a manner which was not professional and actually very degrading and abusive. Also the floor was sticky and there was no soap in the toilets the whole time.

    Keep up the maintenance, cleaning and improve kitchen facilities, which are filthy and poorly equipped. Provide brushes to wash the dishes with, and enough hot water to clean them properly. The bathroom facilities are lousy and poorly maintained.
