Liked: Nice outside area, where people meet, drink, laugh, talk... Breakfast is okay-ish Staff is very nice and friendly

Disliked: Room was extremely small (could harly open our luggage) A lot of things were broken, but there was no intention for repairs (simply putting an "out-of-order" sign is not enough) Fridge system does not work at all (had our fridge emptied twice) Bathrooms were okay-ish, but not really clean

Liked: The atmosphere is very familiar and friendly there! The stuff is also nice and helpful. In the evening everyone is sitting together in the garden... Having some drinks and a good time together :) The girls dorm is spacious and clean. There are about 4 kitchen in the hostel, so there is enough space during cooking. The lagoon, shops and all the bars are about 10/15 minutes walking distance. We loved it there!
