    Had a really nice stay here. The beds were comfy and clean and the rooms were spacious too. Only things that let it down was the state of the kitchen which was grimy and unequipped for such a large hostel, no wifi as stated and the pool hadn’t been cleaned. Otherwise, a nice place and location and would stay again

    A good hostel in a very nice place. Only a couple minutes walk from the lagoon and lots of bars and restaurants close by. Atmosphere was decent but lack of seating area and kitchen is poorly stocked.

    Key items like hand soap and maybe a fridge were missing from the room. Good location, fairly clean.

    Stayed here for two nights. The room was pretty clean but nothing special. We only got a sheet and a pillow for our bedding and the blankets we had to ask for weren’t even full size.

    Location is the best part of this hostel. Everything is really close by. The hostel grounds are so big it’s hard to meet people as a solo traveller. Didn’t feel like there was a communal area. There are no lockers. Only outdoor seating to eat which has little lighting so you’re eating in the dark.

    Kitchen wasn’t the nicest, not much to use! The seating area was outside in the dark so couldn’t see what you was eating. The rooms were okay but just given a sheet which meant it was cold at night!

    Only thing going for this place is the location. Cockroaches in the bedroom and bathroom. Sink taps not working in bathroom or kitchen. I was only staying for one night so just about managed, but it was not a comfortable experience - even for hostel standards.

    DO NOT STAY IN THIS HOSTEL. This is by far the worst hostel I have ever stayed in. There is always a queue to check in despite your key being on your phone. The whole place is really dark outside which doesn’t make it feel safe. The rooms are very dirty and my room stank of urine. You are only provided with a sheet for bedding and no towel. The kitchen is dirty and not well equipped. There is no wifi. I had to move room as the door didn’t lock. There aren’t lockers in every room. No secure luggage storage.
