Staff were unfriendly. The sheets hadn't been changed from the night before. When asked nothing changed so I just took sheets from the laundry and did it myself. Cleaner spent time on the phone instead of actually cleaning. It smells. There's not many power plugs. Don't stay here, it's a good location and that's about it. Super close by is... More

Unfriendly staff, overpriced rooms for what you get, bugs and ants in the bed, dirty rooms, poor WiFi, staff scams you with everything: laundry kilo's, tours and tickets. They even tried to let me pay for the locksmith after they broke the key and the keypad, just added it to my bill and doubled it. You definitely can get better... More

Where to start... The air con didn't work and the pipe leading to it dripped into a waiting bucket, which needed to be changed 4/5 times during the night. This also dripped over the plugs in the room so it was too risky to charge anythjng. There was 1 bathroom shared between 3 dorms, so 18 ppl had one shower... More

Had a really fun stay with all of the other backpackers staying in the dorm. Big clean room with 10 beds. Poor wifi, good AC and big lockers for valuables. The hostel was located right by all of the cheaper restaurants and close to the beach. A bit over priced (7 US dollars) but the included breakfast made up for... More

This place was an absolute bargain, but you soon see why. The rooms were a bit shabby, the shower barely worked, and although it was advertised that there was free WiFi in the rooms, in reality it only works in the lobby. The rooms are also, inconveniently, placed above a bar/night club so there is no hope of getting to... More

We had a dormitory for 5 people. We were very lucky because we have been there in November so not a lot of people in the city and in the hostel. The receptionist was correct, but they lied about a boat trip they sold us : they didn't tell us that the price was not including all the activities ...... More

Close to the nightlife and a 5 minute walk to the beach. The laundry was very good and cheap which was a bonus but everything from the breakfast to the wifi was horrible. There were ants all over the floor therefore had to keep my bag zipped up which was a hassle

I'm really not fussy and pretty chilled about where I stay but this hostel pushed me to the limit! Shame for some the staff who are really helpful. Ants in my bed (and I mean loads) broken air con, 3 nights and had to request clean towels and toilet paper, plug sockets didn't work, in the dorm there was one... More

Cheap place to stay and the staff are nice. Cleanliness is OK. However the air-conditioning worked but we had no control over it. The bar they own blasts really loud music in the evening so stopped us from going to sleep properly (we were diving so had to wake up at 6:15 everyday). One room we had had a weird... More

Ok customer service, some of them were great, others were not! Some of the workers were very pushy, but many they didn't mean to come off that way, just different culture. They take up your passport, which usually I don't stay at places that do that. They shower was broken 75% of the time. They are very disorganized! They said... More
