the staff is kind and nice location very good .
those people labours who are working in that area
Welcoming receptionist great location right by the beach and town. Nice outdoor area and decent sized kitchen.
Quite old beds/ mattresses
Nasty stains on linen. Thin pillows. Tiny kitchen. Rooms so small / packed with bunkbeds that there is almost nowhere to put your backpack. Chaotic organization of bathrooms. Only warm water in the shower with next to no pressure (good luck washing your hair). Dirt on the floors everywhere, esp. bathrooms. Absotutely everything is just cheap with no respect to any comfort of the guests..
The property is in a very handy location. 10 minutes walk from the bus station and or plenty of parking around the property. Despite being along a busy road the noise level traveling inside was really minimal. The owners do try to keep the kitchen and bathrooms as clean as they can. There is a nice big communal table to share stories over a drink. The room is fairly compact but it does achieve the fact that not everyone is fixated on their smartphones but getting engaged in conversation.
Upon check-in, you can only pay cash. Why In this day and age is a mystery to me? The sofas in the lounge/ tv room are very soft and dated. The water pressure in the showers is atrocious. Wish you luck to get even wet. The pot and pans are slowly getting to the end of their life span as are the glass cooktops, which are very hard to adjust and have accumulated an extra layer of an unknown substance. Don't get me wrong they are not dirty but there is a landscape created on the top that is very hard to remove.
I liked the fact that the hostel is located just 100m away from the CBD and a street across the beach, where the Guy Fawkes fireworks took place. I was also lucky that the hostel had several individuals of different nationalities staying long-term on working holiday visas. That made my stay less lonely as I was able to make friends with them. My room had a window with a view to the seaside road.
The rooms are clean but sparse. It didn't have individual lights or sockets to recharge gadgets and the like. Fortunately I was there with only one other guest. It didn't help matters that the bathrooms were far (one had to go through the living room or go up to the 1st floor).
