    I loved my stay at Summer House. This is def one of the best hostels I ever been at! Good & cheap food - nice chillout grass area with hammocks. A lot of activities like Yoga, gym and volleyball. You are maybe far from the city but they have bikes and shuttle busses - that make the distance not hard at all! CHOOOSE SUMMERHOUSE :-D

    The common areas were great. There was plenty of room there. The kitchen was tiny. The location wasn't bad but it wasn't great either. There was a free shuttle into town every hour otherwise you're making the 35-40 minute walk. The room was decent, nothing special but nothing terrible. The bathrooms- yuck. I didn't realize it was possible for an indoor facility to smell worse than a bush outhouse.

    The staff were friendly enough. This place has a lot to offer but it is a party hostel. Music bumping morning until night. I was over it after 15 minutes. I had a private room but it felt like a jail cell. The bathroom had black mold all over the tiles and the shower curtain. And expect a loud flyover from planes every 5-10 minutes. It is a bit far from the city center but you can take a free shuttle or rent bikes from the hostel.
