Liked: the rooms were spacious, you can actually hang out in them. Kitchen and picnic tables are also nice

Disliked: If you don't have roomates its hard to meet people to do things with. The staff doesn't promote any drinking games or bar hops together like some of the other hostels do.

Liked: Loved that you had the option of private king rooms because you could have privacy but still enjoy the atmosphere.

Disliked: Our room had a very damp smell. I also found it strange that we paid for a private king room and there was no way we could have a friend stay with us for a night even if we paid extra

Liked: I really liked the location and the shower.

Disliked: I disliked the cleanliness of the bathroom and the room. The lift was out of order all the time of my stay and any one help w/ the luggage. I had to pay 5 dollars for use one towel and for me this price is completely absurd.

Liked: Really good common area for socialising. Bathrooms are clean and modern. Free wifi was good to have especially to contact home. Location was perfect, in the middle of everything and only 2 minute walk to the beach. And lots of activities and dealson food and the local clubs.

Disliked: Could have been a little more cleaner like the corridors and bathrooms at times.

Liked: Everytime ive stayed here always a good group of people in my room and in common area to have a drink and go out with, which was ideal as a lone traveller. Clean and great location.

Disliked: Bit expensive if you were planning to stay longer than a couple of days but worth it if not.

Liked: I've slept better in police stations & hospitals than at this property.

Disliked: The constant music & noise. The fact that some of the bedrooms are right next to the tv room & kitchen. As well as the staff having very little effect on trying to keep backpackers quiet at night.

Liked: I liked the communal courtyard and the rooms had balconies which is rare in a hostel. We also got a free half day bike hire.

Disliked: The rooms had no mirrors and the bathrooms had little or no plug sockets (we found one bathroom with one socket). This made getting ready difficult for girls - especially since the bathrooms are shared between boys and girls. I asked about this at reception and she said to use the disabled toilet, but that was always occupied. We stayed in this hostel because it has air-con but since we then had to get ready in the bathrooms, which didnt have air-con, this was a bit of a waste. The beds were also incredibly squeaky. The bed my friend was using had a broken ladder which she couldnt use. The price ($50/night), was pretty expensive.

Liked: Outdoor courtyard is nice, rooms with balconies are nice, great location, fairly large kitchen

Disliked: Big party hostel, people leaving everyday so you get woken up to alarms and squeaky beds a lot. Cleanliness of bathrooms really needs more upkeep, a flood had happened and made the place smell horrible in the hallways
