Great location in town center, clean, nice bar, good swimming pool, lovely garden. Lacks the traditional backpacker atmosphere if that’s what you’re looking for. Overall great place.

We had a great time at Fawlty Towers and stayed there for 4 nights. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Mirriam on the front desk is very knowledgable and was able to answer all our questions. It has a very well equipped and clean communal kitchen. All facilities were very clean. Dorm room was comfortable and mosquito nets were new. Place was quiet whilst we were there.

NO WIFI! They say that have it but it’s non existent. The men’s bathrooms were often a mess for the entire day after the initial cleaning in the morning. Breakfast is NOT included for anyone in the dorms & there’s only one key for the room so if someone takes it with them you could be out of luck. The facilites & grounds are nice with a nice lounge, lawn & small pool. Common kitchen is basic but useful. The staff is friendly and always tries to help if you ask. Convenient location. NEEDS WIFI!
