    Best party hostel on the Island. You meet new people every night. Awesome staff that supports you during the day and pregames and go out with you every evening. You can also rent bikes to drive around the Island.

    Its a very clean hostel with only 3 beds per dorm. At 7 everyday there are drinking games where people from even outside the hostel show up. Staff is super friendly and can help organize all sorts of tours. Parties are a lot of fun! Even if you dont wanna party hard, dont worry cz the party at the hostel stops at 10 after which the entire crowd moves together to another bar

    Great dorms/shower facilities. The long table provides an awesome area for swashbuckling and the bean bags are great for small shindigs or hootenanies. The staff are chill dudes who understand the inner turmoil of a man with a hangover. I'd stay again.

    Great hostel but no pool, plus the dorm doors don't lock. A little pricey and difficult to get into, so would recommend booking in advance

    Was a cool place to meet people and pre before going out but for what youre paying i dont think its that amazing. Looks a bit like a prison and theres no pool!!!!! The rooms are 3 man which is nice if you have a good roomie but otherwise is a bit awkward. As a solo traveller i think this place is better suit. The included breakfast is a huge plus tho and ladies night was super fun!

    The toilet doors are translucent and one of the staff kept shining a torch in one night and just shrugged and walked away when I came out and asked what they were doing. Also there was a lot of green mould on the sinks 😬 Otherwise comfy beds in small safe dorms and a good night out or quite at 10 depending on what you want to do. Could do with a pool.
