Liked: This would be a great place to stay for families, couples, or people looking to rest for a quiet time in a private room. The dorms were not as great, see below. Breakfast was yoghurt, tea/coffe, cereal, bread rolls, and a lady comes to make you an egg- although that can sometimes take a while depending what else she is doing at the time. The water was always really hot in the downstairs shower for the dorms, it was cold once and the gas bottle was changed as soon as I mentioned it- nowhere around here has central heating for water you see. The staff are quite friendly and do try to make it a nice stay for you, but they seem more concerned about the tour agency than the hostel- most places that have an agency always are grrr. The front door is always locked and has to be opened by staff, the doorbell can go off at night but at least it's safe. For the dorms there is only 1 key so the door is always open to staff & other guests. The location is just 10mins walk to the central plaza across the other plazas in town so perfect, it's close enough but not too close to the noisy bars.

Disliked: The toilet & shower rooms for the dorms are downstairs built into the kitchen/dinning area, not a great place to put them and it's a fair walk from the dorms. The cleaning/breakfast lady is kinda lazy, I saw her laying on a bed watching TV one day when she was supposed to be cleaning the room haha. And sometimes she just doesn't come and sort out breakfast when it's running low. There is no recent communial area. I think they class the breakfast/dinning area as a lounge because there is a small TV on the wall but it's cold and only got wooden chairs & tables. This place seems to be booming between 6-9am when the staff arrive but after that it's dead all day!

Liked: Marlon's had hot showers and good sized bedrooms. The breakfast was also nice in the morning with cereal, yogurt, bread, and hot drinks.

Disliked: The room we stayed in was fairly dirty upon arrival. We stayed in a Double, but luckily the room had two twin beds in it in addition to the double bed because the sheet on the double bed had not been washed and were noticeably dirty... As a result, we ended up sleeping in the twin beds for the night. The bathroom also had weird stains on the shower curtain.
