We chilled out here for a few days. The room was nice and the bed was EXCELLENT!! Not your normal crap. The hostel is split up into flats so there is only 7 or 8 of you sharing the kitchen, bathroom, TV area which is nice. It is a perfect place just to relax and get to know the other BPs staying there. I had a look into the dorm rooms, no bunk beds, little tables with lamps so no strip light coming on at 4am! The only problem is paying for the aircon per night.

We had a week here. On arrival our room looked clean so we left our bags and had a walk about. At 2am when getting into bed, the sheets were still dirty (I HATE this!) but reception sent some poor guy up to change the sheets and off to sleep we fell. The next morning I had been bitten all over, ALL OVER! The reception staff were excellent and gave us a free up-grade to an en-suit with sky TV for the week. RESULT!! So we enjoyed our stay (obviously!). But the staff were good, gave us free washing powder and so on so the problem was sorted and we were happy with the result. The travel desk here is very good, we booked all our tours and got free photos and stuff, so well worth it.

We had a couple of nights here in Jan'07. we knew it was a big busy backpacker factory where you are a number not a name. It wasnt that bad, we were lucky to be in a double room as they are not as close to the bar and night-club like the dorms. The kitchen was'nt very good but they do have thier own cafe and a good selection of food to buy. I think if there's a group of you and you want to party, why not stay here? But if you need to be up early for a trip or tour then maybe look elcewhere. It wasnt the best hostel, but Ive been in worst! Bedbug sheets are needed in the dorms.
