Yes, the breakfasts are great and some of the rooms are nice, but the kitchen is dirty and the toilets are disgusting (they're not cleaned often enough, so the waste bins fill up and spill out all over the floor). One toilet was blocked and was overflowing all over reception while the staff sat chatting at the desk. Most bedrooms...

A very clean, spacious Hostel. The dorms have high ceilings and don't get stuffy. The showers and toilets are kept clean as is the kitchen and dining area. The staff are very helpful and friendly and they do a great buffet breakfast. I loved the spacious lounge areas and the open patio.
