Liked: I loved the location, I was in walking distance to shops, restaurants and the beach. I found this hostel quite cozy.

Disliked: So many different steps all through out the property. Most step they have yellow and black tape to draw attention to. Expect the drop of their front porch as I hurt my leg and back twice from an unexpected drop.

Liked: Great locationConsiderably cheaper than the hotels on offer

Disliked: The lights in the bathroom only worked for a certain length of time which is unsafe especially if you happen to be in the showerThe kitchen is unsupervised and on one occasion I walked to a cooker that was left on when there was no one around

Liked: Location mostly. Loved having the option of a single room.

Disliked: I didn't mind the property, it was fine. What I didn't like was the office hours...it was closed between 10am and 4pm. Waiting to check in was too long. When you're travelling a lot, you just want to get settled in asap. Re: below question about HotelBooks being promoted at the hostel, I don't actually remember either way.

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year

Liked: Handy location, good parking facilities, bargain soda in the vending machine and games room.

Disliked: When I arrived around noon the staff (on a break I think) were crashed out asleep on the sofas in the communal area. Meant it wasn't a very welcoming atmosphere, also staff didn't have very good knowledge about the local area (eg how best to get to the highway). Quite a few longstay residents (volunteering at the dolphin experience) were individually friendly but meant staying in a dorm felt like intruding as they had taken over all the communal spaces.
