Liked: Good location, really helpful to suggest motorbike parking. Great that they have teamed up with one of the whale watching companies to offer discounts when booking through them.

Disliked: When we got to our private room we went to close the window to keep the noise out, and there was no window pane there, which we were not informed about. When we went down to ask to change rooms they said they knew and they maintenance guy wasn't in over the weekend and they were full for the night so couldn't offer us a different room.I thought it would have been nice to be told about it when first checking in and offered a rate reduction as we still had to pay full price.Wifi didn't work.

Liked: Very easy to find, and centrally located. Great staff. Kitchen facilities were spacious and well stocked

Disliked: No common area out side the very small bar. Mostly long term guests, which in itself is not a problem, but should be advertised, as these are very different guests to those staying short term

Liked: Independent bathrooms are quite clean and convenient.

Disliked: People of all kind can walk in to the hostel and use computer and bar and restaurant. Including homeless people. Did not feel safe. The area is full of homeless people as well, so if you are female and alone, don't go out at night.
