    Very clean hostel with friendly staff. Wifi wasn’t great and often didn’t work. But overall a nice, social atmosphere.

    Don’t bother paying for a bunk bed in the budget accomodation cabins. The walls are paper thin and beds are uncomfortable - you’d be better off paying extra for a nicer cabin, or just sleep in a tent. The location is great though, and the facilities (kitchen and dining area) were good, had everything need.

    A rip off, paid $100 for a 2 bunk bed cabin and it was the tiniest most bare bones place we’ve stayed at for that price. 2 main staff are NOT happy, friendly people. Place gets super loud late into the night and starts back super early as the rooms are gathered around the shared space and kitchen area. You’re better off tenting.

    Staff are really rude. Its almost as if they dont want you there. Other than the rude staff everything else was ok. Apart from having to come out of the shower every two minutes to activate the hot water.
