Liked: Nice bunks with your own reading light and with toilet and shower in the room. The bar was nice and had some really nice meal discounts. The staff and the activities was awesome.

Disliked: The ventilation in the kitchen was poor, so you smelled really bad after cooking.

Liked: In the 8 dorm room i stayed in, there are ensuite, tv, and even fridge, with the average rate like all the other backpackers. Staff are friendly and the bar in house is just a great place to meet people and have a small drink or dinner. Free shuttle bus every hour that runs to the city. The kitchen isn't very clean, though, that's the only bad thing. Good benefits after all.

Disliked: The kitchen is a bit dirty, cuz not everybody staying is cleaning up after him/herself...

Liked: great rooms - power socket, shelf and reading light by every bunk, good location, great kitchen, generally nice place, great bar, apart from 1st floor rooms was actually quiet even when club was going downstairs.

Disliked: squeaky plastic matresses, tv room closes at 10.30 so if you dont want to drink then there's not a lot else to do of an evening - comfy sofas in reception but not an amazing common area.
