Liked: Nice staff, Irish lady on the day was friendly and helpful. Private rooms have air con, TV, bar fridge and nice bed

Disliked: Mostly long term young backpackers who are working in town staying so there so not that friendly, no room in fridge or kitchen shelves. Bathrooms need to be cleaned twice a day and hammocks definitely need a wash

Liked: Lovely friendly staff which helps towards creating a great atmosphere. Our private double room was super clean and comfortable and our bed was huge. There was a fridge in our room which was useful Nice touch getting some soft fresh towels with the room too.

Disliked: Kitchen was ok, could do with a bit of an update and a clean. Didn't really bother us too much though as we hardly used it.

Liked: Inspite of the fact that mostly you will see work&travel youngsters there, the atmosphere is absolutely amazing. Also it has nice garden, bar, pool and showers. One of the best hostels I've been to in my life. I wish I stayed there longer. Highly recommended!

Disliked: Well, there is nothing to dislike about Dougies.

Liked: This was an excellent hostel with a lovely chilled vibe. Dorms were of a good size and everyone had a small locked drawer for valuables (so much less hassle than having to go to reception everyday!). Toilets and cooking ares was clean.

Disliked: Could do with more toilets/showers for the number of guest.
