It's a party hostel, which is all good! just make sure you expect a lot of mess and a lot of noise, but you get what you pay for, its the cheapest hostel in surfers! and does have good hang out spaces but again there will always be people drinking and being rowdy.

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
The property is quite well located, being only 10 minutes walk from the beach and shopping/ The Receptionist was bright, pleasant and helpful. The accommodation (double bed room) was not impressively decorated, and one broken window, had been boarded over. The Booked Continental Breakfast did not exist. The structure of the adjacent rooms looked extremely tatty and curtains opposite rooms were grimy and paintwork in extremely poor condition. The room was very cold, with no form of heating ... I literally slept in bed, with my clothes on ...
