Party Hostel

Location, Price, Wristband key
This place is good if you are a night owl and want to be at the party all night, as the hotel is right above the main bar in town. we however, stayed here because of its location to the airport but didn't enjoy it. We tried to have an early night due to our early morning flight but were unsuccessful. Not only could we hear all the noise from downstairs, but the hallways echoed terribly and people stayed up late talking in them, so we heard everything.

Wouldn't go back

Spew on the toilet, a tampon on the floor and urinated bed sheets
We were supposed to stay 3 nights but left early and booked accommodation elsewhere. The staff were nice enough but the facilities were not clean or welcoming. The key we had accessed all rooms and I'm assuming this was the same for everyone else. We accidentally entered the wrong room on the first night which is how this was determined. Security wasn't great. We had two fights outside our window on the first night and a brawl in the pub on the second. Fantastic location for what we needed however, wouldn't go back.

Just a room

Reasonably comfortable and a great location, however staff weren't very friendly, it was very noisy as is on top of a pub and the bedding wasn't clean. Ok for the price paid.

It was good but a little noisy

1.Good meal-they offer some bread and butter.
It was a little noisy and unclean. But their security is not bad and you can use free-Wifi at level 1. Staff was kind as well. But they open their reception after 8A.M. so I couldn't get my deposit ;-(

Noisey but a good stay

1Location good for surfers 2close supermarket 3close to the beach
All is good just the cleaniness of the room. (Quite dusty for places hardto reach, like the window tops and cupboards top) the reception guy. I think he's manager of the place. Rude but at least he get things done.

Good for short stay

Free breakfast, free airport shuttle and air-conditioned room
The room that we stayed was quite smelly of other people's clothes, and the air-conditioned room made the smell stronger. The bunk bed is pretty tough, not much squeaky sound was made, and they even have a tv room that has xbox in it. The continental breakfast is good, but the wifi signal is quite bad in the rooms.
