There were sinks in our dorm room and whenever somebody turned the faucet on, it sounded like a machine gun was firing, which was extremely loud. The fans were unbelievably old and full of dust. The bunks are... More

The hostel is a 3 minute walk from the bus station and the beginning of the main strip which is good.

If you loved party then here is the perfect place for you. Roof parties 3 times a week which means loud music. 3 mins walk to the main street and the beach, 10~15mins to Walmart. The wifi works on ground floor only. Housekeepers clean the r ooms everyday which is good but when you stay in the 10 beds room,... More

The bar on the roof is the perfect place to meet new people or hangout with old friends, they even have a pool up there for the... More
