Liked: It has a pool and hot tub, and a friendly atmosphere at the bar

Disliked: It is a complete party hostel, full of relatively selfish young people who will, literally, scream and shout and sing outside your door at midnight because they're 'cutting lose' on holiday. If getting drunk and partying with new people is your thing (and your in your early twenties) stay here - if not, steer clear.
