    Nothing to complain about it, absolutely a great hostel! Far from the center but you can borrow the bikes for free or take the shuttle bus also for free, anyways there's not much to see in the center lol, you'd rather stay at the hostel pub. It is very close to the airport. Staff is lovely and there are daily activities organized. One of the best hostels I've ever been to.

    This hostel recently opened so everything is extremely new, especially the beds which is a huge plus. The pool is huge and resort style which I absolutely love! The bar has some great food and drinks options for very reasonable prices. The only downside is that it is further from the city but they have free bike rental and shuttles to get you to and from the city. I would happily stay here again in the future.

    Amazing value for money. The rooms are really clean, good air con and plug extensions provided so everyone can charge their phones. Bathrooms aren't as modern but are kept clean and have good showers. So much to do here, huge pool, nice bar and netflix. The shuttle bus makes it so easy to get into the city and back. Had a great stay, the staff are what make the place really, helpful on reception and keep everything clean and tidy and get people involved in the daily activities.

    This is the absolute best hostel I’ve ever stayed in!! The value for money is absolutely unbeatable. Super fun atmosphere. We loved the bar area which has tons of games every night—pool table, bean bag toss, jenga, ping pong and more. The clientele staying there were some of the best people Ive ever met. Free shuttle into town and free breakfast are a win win. Pool, beach volleyball and slack line, and tons of other things to do. Only complaint is bathrooms stunk a little and ran outtoilet paper

    Lovely hostel, really chilled out. It’s a bit out but free shuttles into town & free bikes. Staff are super friendly. Only slight downside is kitchen gets grubby but that’s mainly because some guests are a bit 🤢. Would like a slightly larger breakfast station as it was a bit crowded tryna use spreads etc. Other than that would stay again!!

    Good hostel, huge lockers could fit all your stuff in it. The staff were very friendly! Offers free shuttle to the city as well as free bikes. The rooms were clean, but the bathrooms could use a bit of work. My only downfall was no hot water either time my friends and I tried to shower :( However, I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

    Nice, new and clean hostel. But Calypso is better and little closer to the centre. Mattresses could be more comfortable and doors are being locked and opened by card which often works for 4-5th attempt.

    Nice pool and good layout for socializing. The room was unfortunately a let down due to moldy smell.
