Good social hostel just lacking a few basic things: No microwave in the kitchen; no lockers in the room; no milk provided with the cereal and toast breakfast.

Very cozy hostel. They organize an activity and food for little money for 5 to 10 dollars. They also have a kitchen with two stoves. Clear and tidy kitchen. Shower and kitchen are very clean. The bedroom is practical and clean. The employees are very helpful. If they can, they will drive you to the train station and to places of interest to make a nice outing as a group.

Lovely place to recoup
Super cool place with great vibes and lovely people. Really impressed with the bar called 'Charlies' within the hostel, there was also a little simple gym next to the pool which was a blessing. I was shattered when I turned up and there the perfect offer for $5 to have a great dinner cooked for me....I took it, it was fab. Thank you for a great stay!

Very dirty, need to throw disgusting furniture out
Very dirty need to clean once a day. Clean towels in kitchen every day. Couches and chairs look disgusting need to be replaced. Faucets do not work. Need outside light on night entry. Kitchen dirty. On the other hand the owner and staff were friendly and helpful. It was a good location for me close to rental car return and airport

Ok but too pricey for what you get
Nice chill out area, good and cheap dinner in the evening, only two toilets on ground floor, dirty pillows (need renewing), cool dog
