I chose this place only because I hitchhiked and my drivers were staying here. I'm glad I did though.

It looks small from the outside, but inside is a lovely communal area, quiet tv room and a well though-out kitchen. It's perfectly designed for meeting plenty of people.

The dorm rooms are a little small in size, but the beds are comfortable and they don't contain too many beds.

Staff are friendly, though they do try to push the tours.

Particularly like the hot tub in the centre of the private courtyard!

This hostel has a nice vibe about it, the communal areas are clean and welcoming and with friendly staff and free soup its a good bet. But a major critcism was that there the room really was too small to have 3 bunk beds, I stayed in a dorm room and there was just no room really even for your backpack, let alone trying to get anything out of it, and I only travel with 10kgs, but you could see how everyone sort of struggled round one another. There was nothing wrong with the room itself just the size, was much better suited to 4 people.

With this in mind, it felt a tad expensive for such a small space.

Room Tip: try and get a bigger one!

Stayed for 3 nights - slept well, although the walls are pretty thin. Nice common area, and pretty good location. Had a spa which I didn't use; washing machines were in high demand. Otherwise, as backpacker accommodation, it was pretty good. I'd happily stay there again - the staff were really friendly and helpful, and the atmosphere was really relaxed. Even though I'd booked at an agreed price, they still gave me a better deal when I got there, because they were offering it...so all up it was a good experience. I didn't notice any excessive dampness, but it is in a very high rainfall area, so you're going to get some damp at times.

The hostel host was friendly enough, but the bedroom smelt of damp and had quite a soft bed.
The shared sinks are very open, so there's not much privacy when cleaning your teeth or having a wash.
The free soup is a nice touch and very tasty as well.
In fact the free touches are the best things here, along with the size of the kitchen. If more time were spent on the rooms it would be a much better place.
