Liked: If I liked anything, it isn't coming to mind...

Disliked: Spiders in the showers, usually wide open front door, having our request for pillows ignored, and the complete absence of staff after 8 pm.

Liked: The garden is beautiful and they are very flexible with the check-out time.

Disliked: Everything was dirty - I booked a room with privative bathroom and when I came there the toillet was horrible and there was some urine inside. The fridge was dirty and broken - we cannot close it completely - which caused a total waste of money and did not refrigerate. The whole time we stayed - 3 nights - they did not cleaned the hostel (even the bathrooms!) not even once - to the point that we find a flying cockroach in one of them. The staff was just there - they did not try to speak with us, did not tell us about some things to do in the city or something like this. And the hostel has no lockers, no door lock in some rooms and the front doors are always open - we did not think the location is unsafe, but for travellers is a bit uncomfortable. It definitely does not worth the money - booked only if you want the cheapiest place to stay.

Liked: A few blocks from bus and ferry terminals (but so is the whole town). Comfy bed, hot showers. Nice courtyard to relax in.

Disliked: Even though the staff were friendly, they weren't forthcoming with any info about the town or amenities nearby. WIFI intermittent. Not a stick of furniture or a single hook to hang anything on in our room or in one of the bathrooms. Facilities seem to be cleaned once a day. Staff seemed to be hosting a big group of their own friends at the hostel, played loud music late at night. Kitchen facilities poor, fridge overcrowded and a broken toaster made it hard to cook. They tried to charge us $15 more per night for the room when we paid.

Liked: The hostel was nice and in a decent location, but the best part was the backyard area. It was very serene and gorgeous. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Disliked: There were no lockers or even anywhere to put valuables. When we asked he said 'it should be safe'. Although I wasn't inherently worried about someone breaking into the hostel (the door was unlocked all night, anyway, wouldn't be hard), I was also just worried about someone inside the hostel maybe just grabbing my wallet when I wasn't paying attention. I just like to have the knowledge that my valuables are locked up, and although the site said lockers were available, they were not.
