Stayed here for three weeks and was very happy leaving! Can't believe they actually charge up to $22 a night here. It should be $12!!!!!!!!!!!! Didn't even bother asking for a refund because the young manager is the most grumpy unwelcoming person I've ever met. There is dodgy Australian mid termers staying here that ask to borrow money. Very messy... More

The place was filthy and well in need of some tlc and a damn good clean. Very little in the way of catering facilities. One kettle, one toaster 2 microwaves and a 4 burner hob for a hostel capable of sleeping around 40 people!! Same with cutlery and crockery. All the sofas were dirty and broken along with most of...

Exactly what you want in a hostel. Cheap, cheerful and fun. Good social area and the fact it's situated next to a bar, which offers great specials, is ideal for meeting new people. Free breakfast is always a plus as well

We got a different room, less crowded and didn't have to pay extra at all! Free breakfast (Really cool if you have a hangover) + the neighborhood/environment is nice! Would recommend :) If water is your element, you are at the right place! (Nearby the harbor)
