    Pool table and deck to watch sunset from, spacial setup doesn't lend itself well to 'chill', more of a party vibe, loud music at night, but even if you don't fancy party vibes it's ok for a few nights

    The hostel is fine and cheap, but some basic things were missing. When it was raining we had drops falling on our heads. The kitchen is nice and the pool is great. In total it's worth the money .

    Hostel could do with more fans and better room layout as only some fans for many beds and not many charging ports. Location is slightly out of centre but is ok.

    The hostel facilities were nice and the staff was friendly and helpful. It wasn't really clean and the hostel kept having water issues (no running water for a day) and besides the weekend, literally noone is in the hostel.

    The facilities in the hostel are gréât with the pool and huge kitchen, is a great atmosphere too. The dorm rooms however are some of the worst I’ve seen. One working fan in a room of 12, beds had no top guard, no plug sockets, flies everywhere and really dirty. The toilets and showers are also very dirty
