    I was so lucky to find this lovely place! Everyone was super helpful and caring when I had to stay in house because of an injury I had. The beds are amazingly big and comfy. There’s a rooftop and a veranda where you can hang out, but don’t wanna go out in the hectic city. Very good food places around the hostel. And I absolutely loved to have a pool table!

    Great place, with a great atmosphere. Just sit back and have a yarn or a game of pool with the locals or other travellers. Dinner was so good, although its not served every night unfortunately. Just a few minutes to the Maccas (McDonald's) though, you can see it from the roof.

    This is an excellent, new hostel. Everything is sparkling clean and beds are huge! Annoyingly there was a problem with our room and we got moved from a 6 bed to a 12 bed dorm but it was a cheaper rate and they gave us free drinks the whole time we were there. Really nice, social atmosphere for a really modern hostel.

    A brand new hostel, which is still in development. It was extremely clean, spacious, good atmosphere (although only a small crowd), and relaxing hangout areas (with a pool table!). The breakfast was very delicious, which changes each day - although, I would recommend simplifying it in the future once the hostel/B&B grows, and extend the serving times? Fort area is a 30 min walk, or a short TukTuk ride. The coast is just a 2 min walk - The sunset is a MUST watch. I would gladly stay here again.

    Very Good

    Hostel is located in a good location with many places to eat nearby. Security is good with a guard downstairs at the entrance at all times, however the rooms themselves do not have locks on them. Lockers are provided and can fit a 44l backpack easily. Washrooms were quite dirty and soap was not provided. Common areas and dorms were very clean, so unsure why the washroom was not held to the same standard. Staff was unfriendly.
