Liked: Besides the location, there is nothing good to say for this hostel.

Disliked: Where to start? This is a loud, noisy, party hostel infested with the stereotypical partying backpackers who have absolutely no consideration for other travellers. On a Friday night you'll be lucky to get one hour's sleep if that. What's worse, the staff don't care or make any effort to keep the noise down. The beds squeaked with the merest turn and I scratched all night. Will never stay there again.

Liked: Good location, travel staff were very helpful and gave good deals, decent bar next door which also serves food.

Disliked: had to pay for wifi, most people in the hostel live here so arent as friendly as other hostels may be. $10 for food which is quite pricey, not many plugs in the rooms. for a single first time traveller i would reccomend staying at a smalller hostel to meet more people who are also travelling.
