    Great place for meeting people or having fun, because it's not as wild as Gilligan's but it's not quiet like many other hostels. So if you're looking for somewhere that's a social atmosphere but you're still able to get sleep by 11pm, then this place is great!

    A bit far away from the city centre, but that makes it more chill as well which is nice.

    Summer House had a really cool chilled vibe however the rooms were not well air conditioned, there are no plugs next to the bed just a few extension cables on the floor so if you are the top bunk, your screwed. Friendly staff though, bar and food are cheap and have a great atmosphere just the rooms let this venue down. Free shuttle bus back and forth to the city is ideal.
