    This is an awesome back packers with great potential. The seasons are a bit tough sometime, visited in a slow season so didn't get a proper experience. A must visit though. Friendly staff. Clean showers and bathrooms. Toilets there were some minor issues.

    I was there with my friends for a weekend and the location of the lodge is pretty nice and the interior is styleish and relaxing but the "dormitory" type rooms should be names "prison" type. Simplest iron bunk beds with not a single nightstand/closet or...More

    Thanks Albert, having travelled a fair bit ourselves, we're fairly content that our dormitories are well-above average. We offer hotel quality linen and duvets, decent foam mattresses... and beds that are not right on top of each other. This allows space between and under for...More

    Legends is a nice place to stay but with some improvements even better: 1. Make the 'snake room' a nice place to chill. Some couches, pool area or table tennis. Reading area. Up to the owners to decide the final look and feel. 2. Give...More

    Thanks for the review... and the useful insight. I see with some relief that your review dates back to January 2016 (which was pre-management purge). For the record we have a zero drug policy at Legends. This includes marijuana - which is what I presume...More

    The hostel was fine. Basic rooms with no thrills, something you would expect from a backpackers lodge. Clean bathrooms shared with one other room (a bit of a trek from your room though) Kitchen facilities were good and well equipped and my boyfriend cooked dinner...More
