    This place was awesome. It’s a 3-bedroom house, and our group of 5 got the whole place to ourselves. Was basically a B&B for much less money.

    The bad reviews had us expecting a crappy cottage. It's cute colorful and feels like home bt had NUMEROUS COBWEBS IN EVERY ROOM and sizeable roaches. If they dusted the ceilings&corners, it would be nice. But omg it's webby. They have spotty WiFi & you can only access it via a vouchers that gives 1MB at a time. It's actually ridiculous. No insulation so it's cold overnight in April and the heater didn't start up like they said it would overnight. kitchen is adequate. Cheap but would not go back

    Its a decent place to stay for the night if you’re looking to do the cave tours but nothing more. But not very clean, there was cobwebs and spiders EVERYWHERE. Every time I went into the backroom it seemed as if 5 new ones would pop up. And in the bedroom we found a huge one hanging above one of the beds. The wifi didn’t work very well. But the staff were pretty nice and overall it’s not bad as long as you plan to spend most of your time outside of the hostel and just use it as a place to sleep
