    There‘s one great bathroom for girls. Every other one is kind of disgusting. The Pizza shop next door is great. Staff is really nice and atmosphere is good too.

    Great location and amenities (big lockers for storage, air conditioning, good beds and linen, good shared spaces ie movie room, patio, rooftop lounge, computers and staff was great but I was located in an old building and bathrooms NEVER had hot water (one hot shower in 5 days- ended up just going to the gym to use their showers) and cockroaches often slipped under the door into the rooms since the gap was so large - especially an issue if you’re on a ground floor!

    Positives: good location. staff were very friendly and informative. Free breakfast was a bonus, cereals, toast and fruit juice. Also get free use of gym genisis which is just round the corner. Negatives: cleanliness of the hostel lets it down, bathrooms are old & not very clean. For the size of the hostel the kitchen is small & most of the hobs and ovens don’t work. Make sure you take a shower before 7pm, we made the Mistake of taking a shower after 8pm and it was COLD!!!

    This place is definitely what you pay for - it is cheap but super small rooms, a pool that didn’t seemed used, bathrooms that were okay, and everyone seemed extremely cliquey. Granted we didn’t spend a lot of time in the hostel so maybe we missed the chance to make friends but people were not very warm. Location was good enough, 15 min walk to the lagoon/pier. Overall it was fine but not impressive.

    I wouldn’t recommend this hostel. If you’re just looking for somewhere to sleep it’s fine but if you’re looking for somewhere with atmosphere this is not the place. The rooms are very small and it’s hard to get a shower or any privacy. The facilities are fine but dated.
