Great little hostel with good facilities such as a bar, pool, kitchen facilities, dorm rooms and private rooms. We had a group of 9 so had a 7 bed mixed dorm and a private twin, both rooms were great. Ideally located near tram stop, 2 stops from centre of town and main beach.

I stayed at this hostel for around 5-6 nights. During this time I found the room, bathroom and kitchen to be nothing but clean. The cleaners would clean perhaps twice a day which kept it all in good shape. The facilities that were available were also fantastic. A swimming pool, tennis/volleyball court (with equipment at reception) , free washing machines,... More

Great hostel, free Wi-Fi and free laundry! Clean and big rooms. Hostel has its own bar with cheap drinks. Nice little swimming pool. About 15/20 minute walk to city centre and 5 minute walk to beach. Bar crawl nights for 30 dollars. Would recommend this hostel to everyone!

I loved this hostel! It is more like a holiday resort and it's very social, all of the rooms are based around the tennis court and bar. The rooms are so clean and have their own bathrooms which are cleaned very well everyday by the staff. They have nightly activities like pub quizzes and nights out so it gets everyone... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in one of the apartments which was a real nice change. The apartment had a kitchen area, bathroom and lounge area which was shared with another two people. Would have liked to have stayed here longer if there was more to do in the area. Perfect for a few days chilling out. Wifi was... More

This hostel is every solo travellers dream. Dorms are clean and well looked after- they come in every morning. It's only a short 20min walk into the centre for all the shops and restaurants. Little stores are located near by at petrol stations for your everyday needs. It's 5min walk to the beach. Every night the hostel has something new... More

As soon as you walk into this hostel you know you're in for a good time. There's a bar to the left, volleyball/basketball court in the middle, and pool to the right. All of the rooms are facing into the court and everybody is hanging out outside. The hostel takes you on an epic night out on Wednesdays and Saturdays,... More
