We originally booked a room in the hostel after looking at some promising pictures online. When we arrived we were greeted by a friendly staff at least. But that's all positive i can think of. The keys to the doors did not work properly. One actually broke. Then we saw the room ans were quite disgusted. Insects and dirt were in every corner, but most disgusting was that they actually were rude enough to give us a dirty bedsheet. We dont have too high standards but that was too much, even for us. We went back to the counter and asked for a full refund which we luckily received. Around the corner we found a cheaper hotel with cleaner rooms, working doors and even breakfast included. Cant recommend this place at all!

The hostel was very decent to be a backpacker, with common area and computers. When we did the check in the receptionist was very passive and rude… which is a pity to find because as a traveler the minimum is to have people who care about your stay. The room was ok, we had tv, air conditioning and fridge, the only incident is that we had to change the room because the toilet and shower would not flush. At least one of the receptionists (the kind one) changed the room right away! It’s centric 15 minute walk distance from the George town centre area. Wifi wasn’t the best.

We got a room with private bathroom, unfortunately it came without a window, bathroom badly maintained, it's right in front of the corridor entrance, hence little privacy. The pool was only for a cool fresh dip, rather than a swimming pool. Old and spoilt pool table. Towels were not provided. It's really basic and enough for a night. For the same price, you could definitely find a better one around the corner.
