    Great first hostel experience, staff was great and everyone was friendly. My only complaint would be the lack of recycling anywhere... it’s 2019 and I had to walk down the road to recycle my stuff! Otherwise, its perfectly located and the rooms are really clean.

    Location perfect. Staff very friendly. Atmosphere fun. Beds comfy. Kitchen spacious. Fun common room. Hot tubs are barely warm let alone hot. Rooms spacious. I really enjoyed my stay. I'd come back for sure.

    Location was perfect and the facilities really nice. Loved the sun deck! Room wasn’t super clean and the air there was a bit stale. Bathroom was alright. I didn’t use the kitchen but breakfast in the morning was good.

    Very Good

    I had an awful bed bug infestation and had loads of bites. Found out the room had had infestation earlier and the mattresses hadn’t been thrown away! Simply sprayed on the surface which does nothing to kill the bed bugs in the centre. Was told the mattress protector stops the bed bugs from biting which is not true. Had 15+ bites and had to throw some of my stuff away and destroy a lot more on a hot wash. Do not stay in room 103!

    Pros: beds were super comfy and lots of space in the rooms for bags etc. nice little private balcony and en-suite. lots of activities on offer. Cons: can be noisy, activities on offer are great but rarely executed well, atmosphere was poor and wouldn’t say it’s a very sociable hostel. rooms were clean but en-suite bathroom had no soap provided!
