Stayed here for a total of 10 days in 3 different rooms. All in all, I had a good experience.
Good and cheap bar food, kitchen has everything (but is a little small), helpful staff, nice pool, hot and powerful showers, clean, comfy, a good bus service to the city and quiet by hostel standards. I think most of the people here do day tours so most get up very early. As a result, there is not the same party atmosphere as some of the hostels that are closer to town.
However, the rooms do let the hostel down. Room stinks, while one of the beds in room B15 is missing half its lats giving me back pain. I ended up swapping beds. The rooms do not have enough powerpoints to charge everyone's phone, mps's etc. The rooms also have no proper storage space while the bunk beds dont have proper ladders (I was stood on one night by a girl struggling to climb into the top bunk).
So all in all, 8/10.
