Good location but could of been better
The complex didn’t have a big or good enough area for parking my car for drop off and unloading and the one only lift was not working. They ran out of room cards , so we had to use a pass code ( which was problematic at best) for the first day and then only got one room card . We didn’t get room service or clean towels on the Saturday ☹️

The hostel is very good and new. The mattress was not so comfy and also too noise, which disturbed my sleep during the night. The bathroom was good but also not too clean. The location is perfect!

Good 6.0
Kind of A Mess
The staff was super friendly and helpful and many shops, the bus stop, and the beach were all within reasonable walking distance. The free breakfast was also great! However, the kitchen was filthy because nobody is adequately policed about cleaning up after themselves. I also moved into a room that had not been vacuumed and had not had sheets replaced from the previous tenant. They are also far too casual about all of the weed smoking that goes on at the property and the hot tubs were barely warm.

Very good 8.0
It wasn't bad! It was very bare bones. The front desk was very helpful with booking additional trips and so on. This is definitely a party hostel, so be ready for that. Other than that it was normal. Nothing out of the ordinary in a good way or a bad way.

Loved it!
Perfect location! So close to the beach, shops, Aldi everything you need! Majority of the reception staff were very helpful, we had a situation with another backpacker where we wanted to move rooms and this was sorted very quickly and without any fuss! Hotel is very clean, bathrooms are excellent, kitchen is also good (busy at times - but was expected). Large communal area, games room etc, Downside - have to pay for wifi
