Location could be better but the complimentary airport & city shuttles make up for it. Good pool and bar at the hostel and most importantly the rooms have great air conditioning. Stayed at both Calypso & Northern Greenhouse and while NG's location is far better, I'd prefer Calypso as it's not only cheaper but has a better pool, bar, & air conditioning.
