Liked: Location, extreme helpfulness & value for money.I've been reading through the feesback that earlier travellers left & need to disagree with much of their negatives. It's a very welcoming place that will you feel at home from the beginning until the end !!!

Disliked: The beds in the dorms are stacked too close to each other. Lockers would be nice, but you can leave your valuables in the safe at the reception.

Liked: Very fair price, comfortable beds, and excellent breakfast!

Disliked: Younger local staff were nice but the older staff (I think they were the owners) were cold and unfriendly every time we dealt with them. Their kids were also often hanging around the reception/communal area screaming and running around and disrupting everyone, which made us not want to spend any time there. I understand that you have kids that need to be looked after, but if you're running a hostel you need to find another place for them to play and hang out.

Liked: The breakfast is great. Showers are hot-always. Great value for money with soavious twin rooms for about $8/9! Lots of information about activities and even book for you in the hostel! Great location too. We arrived at 6.30 am and they let us into our room- amazing!! Gret hostel.

Disliked: Not easy to meet other travelers in the hostel, common tea but no activities or good space to sit and chill and chat, but maybe because there were a lot of Israelies and they tend to stay in their own groups- not the hostels fault!!

Liked: Great hostel! The staff was so incredibly helpful, they went above and beyond. They even took a disk and shrunk the size so I could upload it on Facebook. The breakfast was great, with 3 options. The rooms and beds were good. The location was perfect! The staff is bilingual, which made it easy to ask questions and plan trips. The view of the waterfall and the church lit up at night was amazing. It was a quite laid back hostel at night. You can't beat the price either. I would highly recommend this hostel!

Liked: It is close to the center and everything is in walking distance.

Disliked: There is a shared kitchen with the family but you only can use salt. So you have to bring your own oil and spices for cooking. The room will not be cleaned during your stay, even if you spend two nights there or more.

Customer would recommend this property


The property's response is

Rooms are cleaned after 3 nights of stay, or earlier if asked by guest.

You´ll have to bring your own food, if you want to use the kitchen!

Liked: Breakfast was good

Disliked: Beds were thin foam, the lady at reception isn't pleasant when you ask about anything. The walls are thin and taps leak so loud. I'm surprised it was rated as high as it was probably wouldn't go back


The property's response is

Matress are just fine, we bought them not to long ago, and rarely anybody complain about that.

Janeth and Itai, whom are at the reception most of the time is very helpful and friendly for the tourists, and you can see that in other reviews people have left us.

If your Tap is leaking, let us know and we´ll fix it.
