Poor stay, greeted on arrival by the smell of weed. Appalling mattress standards unbearably uncomfortable despite reading a review earlier in the year about the mattresses being updated. Average cleanliness around and the washroom ran out of soap. There were children staying at the hostel which changed the atmosphere. The airport noises roared through the room at early morning and late afternoon. 45 minute walk to the nearest town, poorly served by public transport.

Lovely communal spaces but the rooms themselves were run down and only had 2 sockets between. Also, while I was there there were a bunch of old men who seemer homeless staying there. They made noise all night and were generally unfriendly. Not recommended.
