Nice hostel, stayed here for a week and really liked the relaxed friendly atmosphere. Most residents were workers so it wasn't a loud party hostel but it was really close to the main bars and clubs so you could go out and enjoy the nightlife...More

We cleaned and painted during the Wet Season, and our current backpacker staff are taking pride in keeping the hostel clean (please see more recent reviews). We still have the breakfast: cereals, toast, crumpets, yogurt, muffins etc, and free laundry, and have upgraded the free...More

We have new management, and new cleaning staff, and reopened earlier this year (2017) after spring cleaning, routine pest control, and a fresh coat of paint. The wifi has been upgraded too.

We have new management and cleaning staff (2017) and closed briefly during the Wet Season (December 2016) for painting, repairs and spring cleaning. The Wifi has been upgraded, the kitchen restocked with new cutlery and lots of real (ceramic not plastic) plates, bowls and cups....More
