Good location, opposite lagoon. Kitchen pretty big. We paid 25 dollars each for a twin room which was pretty good price.
However, the sheets were not clean and we were not really given the intro you sometimes get at hostels. Stuffy rooms. They tried to tell us we hadn't booked when we had, which I've seen happen to a couple of others on here. The worst part was that we booked an airport transfer for half 3 in the morning and paid a four dollar deposit to the hostel, the transfer never showed and we had no way of getting back in the hostel to ring them up. Probably the transfer company's fault rather than the hostels but was still rather frustrating.
