I had a really great time at Cool Bananas! The staff were really kind and welcoming and made the atmosphere super social. Because it’s quite small you get to know everyone which is nice! The group dinners put on by the owner was also such a great way to get to know people and made it really social. Only slight issue was maybe not enough hobs and a couple were broken!!

Generally, the facilities and rooms were fine. However we did not meet a welcoming or organised staff.Our arrival was really stressful and there was no cooperation whatsoever.

DO NOT GO HERE IF YOU DISLIKE PARTY HOSTELS! While the owner writes that noise is kept to a minimum after 9pm, actually there is loud music playing until past midnight every day outside the dorm, making it quite difficult to sleep. The owner seems to encourage this. Likewise, the hostel is mostly controlled by volunteer staffers, and they seem to be very casual about their workplace, yelling, squealing and sleeping wherever. Will not come back, but could be a fit for the right person.
