Trip Type:
Partying / nightlife

Liked: Great bathrooms, comfy beds, good character, staff were fantastically lovely and all in all it was great !

Disliked: The lighting was a bit cold and unwelcoming (I know, such a small detail ! I'm just not a fan of blue-toned power saver lights though I know they're more environmentally friendly)

Liked: It's a nice old building. Everything was clean and the bathrooms were great.

Disliked: Had a pair of shoes stolen. On the Friday night that I was there I had no sleep at all because of a bunch of really loud drunk men partying all night in the corridor. Complained to reception, they did nothing about it.

Liked: Clean and spacious lobby.

Disliked: * Cramped dorm room* Cheap bunk bed -> some of the support that kept my not-so-good mattress suspended above the person below me failed at 1:30 in the morning. Luckily a free bunk elsewhere in the room was available.* Kitchen is the filthiest I have encountered, including the Base hostel in Paihia, which is saying a lot.
