Liked: apartment-style complexes and free wi-fi were big bonuses. staff were friendly. location was pretty good as well. tv room had large and comfy sofas. own kitchen and bathroom which was cleaned daily.

Disliked: the dive-inn movies never happened during the 4 nights i stayed there which was a bit disappointing. it wasn't very sociable either as there wasn't room to sit by the pool (which was in the shade most of the day). found maggots in a bag that had been left in the wardrobe in my room for ages. there were three or four cockroaches that we found in the apartment, told the cleaner about one of them but it was still there when we came back hours later. toilet seat was broken and the dvd player didn't work. we only got about 2 plates and 3 forks between 8 people which was annoying.

Liked: The staff is friendly, efficient and helpful to their guests. They have scheduled night gathering with very cheap meals. It's a good opportunity to meet tha oter guests.

Disliked: I was shocked with the kind of room they provided to me. It looked like an old house with dirty old pillows and bedsheets. The curtain was tool small for the window. There is no trash bin even in the toilet. Even the toilet tissue was dirty so I think the place was not worth the money I paid for.

Liked: Nice apartment concept, pretty clean, comfortable beds

Disliked: Not much security or privacy, lots of staff seem to have the key for the apartment and would come and go more than twice in a day. No locker for storage in the rooms. Consequently we had a couple of things stolen, probably by the other hostel guest

Liked: All the staff was really nice and friendly and helpful. Location was great.

Disliked: Looked like its really old building, they would need to do some renovating. This hostel has definitely problems with cleanliness. Bed sheets were dirty - staines on the sheets and pillow cases. Shower cabin didn´t have a door, so all the floor was full of water after shower and made the floor really dirty aswell.
