    Summer house was easy to find and facilities were great and clean. Bar has cheap food and drinks every day. Free shuttle into town was great and made not being right in the centre of town very easy. Evan and Chris are friendly guys.

    Loved my stay! The hostel has everything you need, pool, good food, cheap drinks. I really only left for tours. The shuttle bus makes the distance from the city nothing. Would def stay again.

    Great atmosphere. Everyone is super friendly and it's easy to meet people. Plenty of activities, awesome travel desk, good WiFi, lockers. Bar has amazing drinks+food at unbeatable prices. Cons: A bit far from everything and probably a bit cramped when not at covid capacity.

    Overall quite a good hostel considering how big it is. Weekly rates, Free breakfast, happy hours, city shuttle bus and great food deals at the bar contribute to the outrageous value for money. Kitchen isn’t ideal but the hangout areas are pretty decent. The staff were helpful and friendly throughout my stay and the atmosphere was pretty good too, especially for COVID times.

    The staff were excellent but it was the most uncomfortable mattress I've ever not slept on. There is no padding left on the mattresses so you are literally trying to sleep on solid metal bars. Handy stopover very close to the airport but I wouldn't stay there again.

    The location was good depending on what you are looking for, close to the airport and a 30 min walk of the city center. The hostel has a great vibe with a lot of backpackers and a great bar, especially considering the value for money. Nevertheless, the hostel was dirty, the bathrooms were always flooded and dirty, the room was also untidy with the sheets with the smell of humidity and smoke on them. It is a great hostel if you are a backpacker but not if you are a couple.
