Liked: Stayed in a 4 bed female dorm with ensuite. Clean rooms. Lovely pool. WiFi around pool and kitchen area. Kitchens clean but equipment was a bit old. Located just off the esplanade, about 15 minutes from the reef terminal. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Disliked: Nothing

Liked: The staff is very friendly and the rooms are quite big and bright. Moreover airconditioning and a fridge are available in each room.

Disliked: They dont have lockers. The only possibility to store your personal items (eg tablet, camera) is to give them to the reception. That means you have to pick it up before the reception closes. Otherwise you have to wait for the next day.

Liked: Loved the atmosphere. Staff were helpful and the location is great. Right on the esplanade (close to town centre but just far enough out to not be noisy)

Disliked: Wifi is awful. It's slow and cuts out all the time. All guests had the same problem. Also kitchen facilities need to be improved with a few extra sharp cutting knives, bread knives etc.
