    The staff is awesome and make you feel welcome. They went out of their way to arrange last minute tours for me and quickly resolved an issue with my locker. Location is very close to the beach, grocery, ATM. Good atmosphere. Usually had people socializing in the common areas. The rooms are a bit small and facilities need more cleaning. Overall though, it is an excellent value.

    Very Good

    I stayed here during carnival, so I can understand how busy the staff were. Even so, they were extremely friendly, welcoming and professional. And even with carnival, the staff kept the rooms, toilets and communal areas clean, not an easy task. This is a serious party hostel. But again that may have been exaggerated because of the carnival. The aircon was a bit of an issue because it could only be switched on at the reception.

    You get what you pay for, the hostel was worn down and not very clean. The bedsheets were old and the overall experience was not good. However, the staff was friendly and as it was relatively cheap to stay it was not too bad.

    Stay here if you want to stay in a party place. But the hostel is honestly filthy: from the rooms, to the bathroom to the kitchen and fridge. It’s just dirty and feels unclean. The hostel had a nice vibe and would be perfect to meet other traveller. Staff has been helpful. However they don’t have any luggage storage and our luggage was kept inside the storage of the bathroom :-|

    Atmosphere is good for partying however the beds are very uncomfortable and the bedrooms are dirty. Also when it was raining, there was no where to dry off and the rooms became damp. Location great next to the subway Whcih can get you all over town.

    Probably wouldn’t stay here again, rooms are so small you cannot move or sit down anywhere, considering how much it cost the place is run down. Massively overpriced for what it is.

    The hostel is in a really good location but there's a lot of things we didnt like there. First, the bunk beds are super low and its claustrophobic to sleep in the bottom bed (impossible to straighten your hands while leying down). The rooftop was GROSS from the night before full of empty bottles and trash. We didn't get any sheets untill 8 PM because "they were in the laundry" and the staff checked us in to a bed that was already occupied. People were also missing money and stuff.
