Liked: Really clean, from the kitchen to the rooms, bathroom and pool. Looked new, nicely - simply - decorated. Big, really well-equipped kitchen and use of the internet (though it could be temperamental). Calm, chilled atmosphere, a small pool to cool off in after a hard day´s sunbathing and a communal tv area for films and, of course, Friends!

Disliked: Climbing up the ladders to the top bunks brought you dangerously close to the ceiling fan! And despite the fans it was pretty hot and stuffy in the rooms. But apart from that this place was fab.

Liked: its a very clean, spacious and up and coming hostel. the staff were very friendly, there was a huge, clean kitchen. A small pool and very new rooms with all that a traveller needs including your own reading light and power outlets for every bed.the hostel was open and spacious and good for meeting people.

Disliked: its close enough to the centre of town but still a bit of a walk

Liked: Nice and clean. Doesnt appear to have been operating for long. Brand new lockers with keys provided for no extra charge which can also be double locked with your own padlock if you want. Bathrooms are cleaned daily. Good kitchen with plenty of gas cook tops, plates, utensils etc. Huge fridge space for storing food. 5min walk to Walmart supermarket. 5min walk to 5th Ave. Great outdoor eating area with big 42" TV.

Disliked: Rooms are technically seperate. Walls dont go right to the roof so you could peer over the top if you wanted too. They have tried to eliminate this by using some black cloth tack to the ceiling and walls but it didnt do a very good job. When people in next room talked or turned on the lights you were in on the action too! If you cant handled the heat dont stay here as there is no A/C only ceiling fans.
