    Fabulous

    the staff was a bit rude, they are really strict with bringing in alcohol and check your bags because they want you to buy from the bar downstairs. In all, the place could've been cleaner. it was a really good location and something was always going on.

    Very Good

    29 Nov 2018
    I booked for 5 nights but left after 3 as there was not much to do. As a solo traveller it seemed everyone was in groups so it was difficult to meet anyone, but this probably depends on your room. Picked a 8 bed yet only had 3 of us in it for the whole time. The entertainment was pole dancing competitions and wet t shirts which isn’t for everyone! There are lockers and the rooms are clean. The excursions are worth doing via the hostel travel agent but definitely wouldn’t stay more than 3 nights.
