              That they accommodated my request for a room away from the action.

              Slummy, backpacking scene with VERY loud music til the early hours of the morning.

              Great atmosphere and friendly guests and staff. Thank you for a wonderful few days.

              I would have liked to see recycling bins in the hostel.

              the staff were friendly n the bar was reasonable

              a couple of cockroaches but they soon went

              The shuttle bus to and from the city and the airport is an excellent service. We were very impressed with how frequently it went.

              We realise that backpackers accommodation is likely to have late night music/drinking however, with our room so close to the bar, we were not able to sleep until 1am at the earliest. Alot of people staying would have arranged to go on early tours etc. as we did which meant a very interrupted nights sleep. Such a shame really as the bar area was quite nice. Rooms should not be directly facing it especially within 10 metres!!!

            • Single
              7.8

              the staff are full of energy and helpful in tour booking. Like the free shuttle bus to airport~

            • Single

              Very helpful and friendly and funny staff, cleanliness of room and public area, felt comfortable and relax.

              I liked the size of the place, the kitchens were well equiped and the staff were very nice and helpful.
