“Small hostel but everything you need”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2014

This hostel is very small itś like staying in a house but is cosy, clean, nice breafast, TV, rooms with Aircon and WIFI. Everything a backpacker needs.
This isn't a party hostel. It is somewhere you can stay for cheap, is clean, quiet and close to everything. Perfect location and value for money.
Staff are fellow backpackers so helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: The 6 bed rooms have excellent aircon. The two bed private rooms have fans. I would suggest the airc...

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014 via mobile

I spent two nights at this awful hostel. I was not given any information on arrival and every time I wanted to finout something, I was passed on to another memr of staff. The upstairs bathroom rarely has water, the electric points in the rooms don't have enough points so you have to choose between light and fan. The dining room seats 6 at a squeeze, not great for a hostel that accommodates about 30. My food was stolen from the fridge but staff didn't seem to care. The music is always blaring out reggae and there is often a smell of marijuana being smoked. I moved room and the sheets weren't changed for the next occupant. There is one good memr of staff but sadly, she didn't check me in and she doesn't make up for an otherwise terrible hostel. You get what you pay for and I certainly got short changed.
