Liked: Staff (espec. michelle was really nice). The atmosphere would've been god if there were any people around. Bar was good

Disliked: Beds were some of the squeakiest, noisiest and worst i've slept in in 3 years travelling, with worn out madrasses and destroyed crunchy pillows. Would not want to stay at T. more than a few days, max. It seems to be a very tour oriented place... but still best in town- not a big town though

Liked: I spent one night here over the new year period and had a great time! the staff were so friendly and helpful and the hostel had a fun atmosphere, I felt comfortable staying here as an older traveller. The pool was perfect in the hot weather, rooms were simple but tidy. free breakfast and wifi and they even picked me up from the airport. Would stay again :)

Liked: I really enjoyed my stay here, it was great from start to finish. I got a free airport pick up when I arrived at the airport. I spoke to the friendly Dutch girl at reception and I ended up booking my Rock Tour with them which was great. Thanks to my guide Myles who was really good and a lovely group.

Liked: Nice place, not far to the city center, with 2 pools (but one was too dirty to swim). Otherwise, the rooms are good, kitchen is great, like bathroom. The place is quiet after 10pm. But 1 of the bedrooms have no direct access to the balcon. That's a detail, but it's not great.

03 June 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Most of the staff were quite friendly. I just had one unpleasant experience with one staff member. Toddy's is about 15-20 minutes walk out of town. Not the best place to stay in a shared as there are only three showers and two toilets between many people. Have a private room was much better. And beware...although it says there's a free airport shuttle that only means from the airport, not to it.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.
