Very good accommodation for the price
location, staff, worth the money
The location is very good, around 5 minutes to/from the bus station. Free dinner on Tuesday (didn't try it though, came back too late). Free use of bike. Staff is very friendly and helpful when you need them. If you're looking for a budget accommodation, this is the place you're looking for.

Nice, clean and friendly hostel
free BBQ night, friendly staffs and nice vibe!
I've never stayed a place like this before, the room, kitchen and the public area were always clean. Free BBQ on every Tue was awesome, and the killer pool was nice and fun. Staffs are always friendly as well. Well, a place to call ' HOME' for me in Australia.
