    Conform to YHA standards.

    The mosquitos in the room by night because of the light next door was the only problem.

  • Group of friends
    9.6

    Price was good enough for the reason and duration of my stay. very happy

  • Couple
    7.0

    It was clean, with friendly staff and set in a great location.

    The walls are pretty thin, like a prefab building so noise travells through easily and there is little or no insulation so it can be quite cold.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    The rooms and facilities were clean and tidy. the staff were very efficient.

    The W.I.F.I reception was hopeless and we couldn't connect with our laptop. A Queen size bed would have been better for us but we realize that accommodation was very busy during that weekend.

  • Single
    8.8

    Helpful staff, own room

  • Single
    8.2

    friendly, switched on staff, clean room, out of the main drag but within walking distance of ATM's, supermarkets...

    Hostel 'guests' chatting on LOUDLY until 2am!!!!!!! + the mess left in the dining area:- bottles, crisp packets...
