    Super Nice place to stay, Laki the hostel manager is a great guy and the rest of the staff are amazing too! All the dorm rooms have AC which is brilliant and the mattresses are thick and comfortable. Everyone is respectful of the no noise downstairs after 10pm rule too!

    Really great social hostel. Private room was nice. Good shower facilities. Helpful and friendly staff. Great location. A little unclean in the mornings, since it's bit of a party hostel sometimes I guess. Would stay again.

    Great hostel with great people running it. Cleaned regularly. Comfy beds. Unfortunately the water ran out on 3 of 5 days I was there. I could still use a different bathroom which was fine but I had paid extra for a room with a private bathroom so this was slightly inconvenient. This didn't ruin my stay and I would recommend staying here to others.

    The atmosphere was really good and made our time there. The location was also Greta very close to the beach. We stayed in the female dorm which was very small but had great lockers. The toilet sometimes didnt work. We really enjoyed our stay as the staff were great fun.

    We had the most amazing time at the Rockstel! We initially planned to stay 2 nights, and ended up staying a seemed like a lot of travellers staying here ended up staying much longer than planned, which is clearly a sign of how good it is. The manager, Laki, made our stay amazing as he was so welcoming and such good fun. This place is perfect for sociable people who want a ‘family’ atmosphere that is very chilled, but lively if u want it to be. We will definitely be back!

    Stayed here for New Year’s Eve, which can perhaps explain how bizarre the stay was. There was rarely any running water (including the toilet which was absolutely demolished New Year’s Day morning). Staff were lovely. Beds were fine. Room and lockers fine. Location was fine. Dude in my room had to shower using the tap to wash your feet at knee height - so if you’re cool with all that then yeah nice.
