When i checked in the Dutch guy at reception was very friendly, he explained everything i needed to know and showed me to the dorm and the facilities. This Hostel is not a typical hostel though..it's basically 2 ac dorms with a big bathrooms area. There s a bar 5 m away that is used as common area..if people stay at the hostel they get 10% discount. Initially i thought it wasn't great but i met some friendly people in the dorm and it's not impossible to get together and go out. At reception there s also a travel agency where it's possible to book tours and transportation. The English lad at the desk does well his job but won't get as friendly as the other guy.
The dorm...it's fairly big with good mattresses, reading light and personal locker(u ll have to bring your own lock). There r 2 ac units and although it can get a bit chilly in the night, they keep a nice temperature when the place is full.
An other good thing of this hostel is that it's close to the pier, to bars, restaurants, shops...
