    Fabulous

    It's a good hostel with a lively atmosphere. It's quite a walk away from the bus stand but located in beautiful surroundings. I'd say the bathrooms needed to be cleaner and I know the state of them is heavily down to the guests but I think it should be attended more often. Basic breakfast is provided which works and you can have it outside in the beautiful garden. The staff is very helpful and friendly and there is also a barbecue night which brings people together.

    Good

    21 Sep 2018
    Stayed here for 2 nights. Pros: its a very social place. Good to meet other travellers and plan things together, especially if you're a solo traveller.Cons : 1. Rooms were SUPER HOT, esp at night. There is one fan that cant go very fast. Couldn't sleep well due to the heat. 2. Loads of mosquitoes. The mosquito nets makes it even more uncomfortable and hot. 3. The place is not cleaned often. For the 3 days (2 N) I was there there rubbish bin was not emptied at all.
