close to the airport, free shuttle from airport and clean
The staff members were helpful. U can get a free shuttle ride by visiting the hostel's website. It will lead you to a link and you can book a free shuttle ride from the airport on the web. It's clean and there is a small pool.

Cheap but clean and nice stay for backpackers

Convenient location, clean rooms, reasonable price
A refund loud Gilligans next block is a place to make a reservation immediately. The Gilligans is the place to play in clubs, noisy places difficult to sleep at night. This is a quiet, clean and nice rooms. The swimming pool is also clean, albeit small breakfast ~!

Location, good value

nice staffs, great location,
Breakfast was so so, just some toast and muslin. You can buy some food and store at the kitchen. Free movie night, free pancake on sat, free BBQ on Sunday. Great value. Room is alright, six beds in a room and with a fridge, air con and a shared bathroom. I think it's nice for backpackers and we don't have to share toilet with all guests.

A nice place to stay

great location, friendly staffs, nice place
My stay was very nice. The only bad thing is the noise if your roommates are not considerate. Besides the room is near the street so it's quite noisy at night and in early morning with the garbage truck comes. And some other annoying sounds from the public area. In general it was a wonderful. Reception is helpful and friendly. Location is great. Hotel organizes daily activities and most of them are free. This is very nice they do that.
