Good 7.6 From 36 reviews

Good 6.0
Loud (good) music was on throughout the day till about 11 pm. After that, loud talking till 2 am or later. Many people were smoking, it was not a good place for a family. However, the place was new and clean, beds were comfortable, staffs and people were very friendly.

Fair 4.0
Very loud until late at night. We travelled with our kids and the private room is right next to the pool/eating area. Starting at 8am there is loud music in this area so you can’t even rest. The place also charges extra if you pay by credit card which is not specified on the booking page. Very deceitful. Would definitely not recommend!
Justyna, ca1 night family trip
Good 6.0
Not great, needs some improvements
The room was too cold at night with the air conditioning and the single thin sheet was not a sufficiently warm blanket. The toilet didn't flush because the cistern filled up extremely slow or not at all. We had to fill up a bucket with water to fill the cistern. Some of the staff were not so friendly. Pros: it was fairly clean for a hostel and it was reasonably close to the main shops. Overall was not great and I wouldn't stay there again. With some small improvements it might be a good place to stay.

Exceptional 10.0
Stay here if you want to meet good people
I really enjoyed my stay here. Really good customer service: after a hiccup of being put in a non- air conditioned dorm when I ordered an air-conditioned one, I was upgraded to a private room! I met some really fun people with activities in the hostel (and noise) til late at night. Emir who works there is the soul of the hostel and knows all the best places nearby. Pretty good breakfast for a hostel with fresh fruit
