    The location was really close to the bus and boat terminal. Kitchen was very clean, plenty of comfy seating to hang out and watch TV

    The woman who works here wasn’t very friendly/helpful. Made me feel unwelcome. All the rest of my interactions with the from desk I was hoping the man would be there because he was much more pleasant. They hold a $20 (cash only) security deposit and have cameras watching the kitchen so you are being watched like a child, if you don’t clean up, if you don’t bring your sheets in the morning, or if you cause them any other inconvenience you won’t receive it back. Felt like they were holding it above your head for every mistake you could make.

    Lovely atmosphere in the hostel especially at night when the place was full of fairy lights!

    Mattresses weren't very comfortable.

    Great tropical set out with cosy covered lounge area. Room was clean and great value for what we paid. Pancakes in the morning were an excellent start to the day!

    Other patrons were really roudy with music/drinking despite it being a Tuesday and not supposed to drink after 10pm
