Liked: If you are a party person this is the place to be, theres always something going on! There was very good security (keycards and lockers) and the staff were helpful at the travel desk

Disliked: The kitchen was a little small but was relatively clean. The dorm rooms only had one toilet and shower for the whole dorm which meant you could be waiting around for a while. For the price, the place is a bit of a rip off - doesnt include breakfast, towels or any extras. Probably can get a similar standard of hostel for a cheaper price

Liked: Die Lage war sehr gut. Alle sehr freundlich und hilfbereit. Free bbq!

Disliked: Es war jeden Tag Party mit sehr lautet Musik. Es war fast schon nervig. Die Küche war oft sehr schmuddelig, da viele ihre Sachen nicht ordentlich abgeputzt bzw abgewaschen haben. Internet war sehr teuer.

Liked: lockers under the bed were greatfree food some nightsevents in the barnice atmospheretravel desk - can sort out tours, do you deals and help with bank accounts, etc

Disliked: kitch en doesnt have enough cooking equiptment - only a few pots and pans, most of which are brokena problem with someone in our room never really go sorted as it should. they moved rooms but werent kicked out. seeing as there are so many threats around (like if you steal food then you WILL get evicted) i would have thought they'd have treated it more seriously.the rooms smelt a bit. need a deep clean on all the carpets, or replacing

Liked: Everyone there was really happy

Disliked: Not everyone did their dishes! And they got away with it. So when you went to use something you often had to clean it first

Liked: The staff and the guests were all nice - makes sense seeing as it's a party hostel and some of them were basically living there for a few months. The bar was good and the few minute walk to shops and the beach was great.

Disliked: After a 24 hour flight, not being able to sleep until 3am wasn't all that great! It's definitely a party hostel and as good as the social side of it is, it would have been nice to get SOME sleep! Also, the room was a mess. You literally couldn't take a step without standing on people's things.
