Good place to stay
Lovely swimming pool and bar, room was clean, big kitchen but no cutlery or plates - you had to hire them. As I was only there one night and had a teaspoon with me I had to eat my food out of the pot !!! Very large and busy but very friendly place

4/10 Fair

The room is very hot, I could not stop sweating. You hardly feel any cool breeze from the air-condition.

You get what you pay for! I was in a room with 3 other girls. Beds were alright but when I went to the bathroom, I saw a massive cockroach run out. It’s not super clean but manageable. I was only there for one night and booked it because of how close it was to the airport. When I was checking out in the morning, no one was at the desk and I had to wait around 5-10 mins for someone to show up. Overall, I’d give this place a 2.5 star!

Stayed for 1 night, staff were efficient and helpful, the hostel was clean and lively with a great outdoor pool and bar area. The 24hr reception was very useful as I left at 3am and staff were super helpful!
