    First of all the view is amazing!! The location is great, walking distance to everything. The room is spacious and has everything you would need. The hostel is basic but we had no problems with our stay and would stay again.

    Good location (with views) and great value for money. No real criticisms but a little tired around the edges - slightly damp etc.

    We had 3 cockroaches in our room original room, then when we were checking another room to switch we found two more in that room. In the end, we got a room upstairs which didn’t had cockroaches but had many mosquitos.

    The location is perfect and you cant ask for a better view. The staff is very friendly and super helpful. But the cleanliness was so poor that it shifted my overall experience. The bed sheets smelled bad and had yellow stains yellow. The hotwater coming from the heating tank had a rusty smell and I could even see metal flakes coming down the shower head. The room was not cheap and I did not feel like I got the value I was looking for as a backpacker.

    The view is exceptional and the family that run the hostel is friendly and helpful. But it’s a tad out of the way, our door wouldn’t close fully, the shower wasn’t really warm and poor pressure, we had to ask for toilet roll and towels and overall in need of a bit of a clean. It doesn’t seem to have a restaurant or bar so I don’t know why that is in the facilities - I had hoped a bar would indicate a bit more atmosphere but that definitely wasn’t the case.

    This is basically a family home that opens up for the busy season and takes on the overflow from the crowds who have booked late. This being the case we could understand that the bathroom was a little rough around the edges and the bed had seen its fair share of decades. What we felt could have been attended to however was the fact the covers didn't cover the entire bed, the door was so warped it didn't close and the key fob was a folded business card from a local restaurant.In need of some TLC.

    First off the view from our room was amazing and location super!! Both sunrise and sunset great! The downside However, itwas not the cleanest room (mold, sheets, bathroom. Plus the bathroom had mouse poop in the windowsill. ), there were ants all over the floor when we arrived and they stayed the whole time we were there.

    Unfortunately the room was not clean. There was no toilet paper provided and the room was very damp. For the price we paid it was NOT good value for money. I would not stay here again.
