This place has good mix of people and facilities. Table tennis, pool table offer a good way to pass the time. The location and pricing is good. The large room with multiple bunker beds helped 7 of us get accomodated in one room only. Good deal..

One of the best hostels i have been. The staff was absolutely great. Everything was nice and clean and the free wifi and breakfast was so nice. Large kitchens for cooking all together and great space outside with bbq and benches. Close to Beaches, Port, Market, Banks..... In 2 weeks I met very friendly people. Really recommended
