    Value for money. Good place to stay, friendly and cooperative staff. Single rooms are great, shared bathrooms are not that clean. My advice is that you get what you pay for. The staff was really sweet and provided me with clean bathrooms whenever I asked. They were very supportive and helpful. Loved them.

    I don't understand all the bad comments about this place. It's obviously not the most luxurious and cleanest place but you get what you pay for. Pretty nice and chilled area and such good staff. Perfect dive school as well. Would come back!

    I booked one bed in mixed dorm but upon my arrival they did not allow me to check in as they told me Egyptian are not allowed to stay ( I do not know why they have this kind of descrimniation) If I knew that I would not book it, Secondly Why they did not contact me before arrival to change my booking. When I arrived the staff were so cold and did not offer me any soltion for this kind of problem and they told me its my problem and I should solve with hostelworld. And they left me alone. Bad
