Liked: Good rooms with own kitchen. Had great room with just two beds in it. Staff were all young backpackers who came out and got involved. wasnt much of a party atmosphere created though by them, poor rep'in!

Disliked: Internet was incredibly expensive and the free wifi deal meant you had to be up between 7-9am! Disliked how easter disrupted every single night out, clubs closing early, opening late, nightmare.

Liked: very nice that it's like little flats with 3 dorm sharing a bathroom, kitchen and living room, also every night movies at the pool and the BBQ on friday night was great for 5$!

Disliked: bathroom was often quite dirty, as some people didn't remove their leftovers...but this probably depends on the people in the room... at least it was cleaned every day!

Liked: You have your own shared apartment. Very good for mixing with the people in your unit and great for cooking as you have a kitchen to only a few people. Also you have your own living room with TV and sofas to relax on.

Disliked: pool is very small and not a lot of internet facilities

Liked: The dive in movie was good, with food on offer for a reasonable price. The location was good too. They seemed to cater for different types of people aswell. the rooms were a little small but since they were like little apartments it was not too bad.

Disliked: Every morning they would come in and clean. LOUDLY at 9am. They would just vacume clean the room and under your bed, asleep or not. Annoying as these were mainly backpackers working there and were very unpleasant

Liked: Very clean, cleaners in every day, had our own kitchen and living space shared between two bedrooms. Very close to the greyhound bus station and stumbling distance to the clubs and bars. Would not reccommend doing the club crawl, unless you get it for less than $30 for two nights, the clubs are free entry before 10pm anyway and the free drinks are only valued at around $3 one is a shot. But they are very busy so good place to meet people as it attracts a big crowd, but haggle the price.

Disliked: Nothing
