    Decent hostel, however some things to be aware of are that the downstairs rooms don't have locks on them. Another issue is cleanliness, the doors and windows are open on the first floor which led to several bugs entering the lobby. The hotel offers pickup from the port and airport, but the driver was often intoxicated when doing so. Other than that, the location is nice and is nearby to several cafes and restaurants.

    Great hostel, we ended up staying there for 2 nights and the staff are really helpful and friendly. They have air conditioning on at night which is a dream! They’ve also go a rooftop ‘lounge’ area which was really nice and chill in the evenings when we were planning where to go next.

    This place is a good value and in a great location. The staff are also very nice and they have a beautiful rooftop patio. However, the facilities are somewhat lacking. Bathrooms are not great, beds are uncomfortable and does not have much of an atmosphere.

    Stayed here for 10 nights and although the hostel itself was lovely, there was just no atmosphere so hard to meet anyone. I think a lot of people stay there just for one night so you get a lot of late night check ins which then go on to spend hours sorting out their bags with the light on, so I rarely got a good nights sleep. However the location is perfect and the place itself is very clean. The roof top is amazing !

    You have to share a shower room with 2 cubicles with just a shower curtain so non privacy when having a shower. I like to get changed in the shower before i leave the bathroom. Staff ok approachable but my room had no pin to get inside so every time the staff came inside they would not knock and just walk in. I didnt understand why all the other rooms had pins but not room A
