    Holding onto acalades from the past and in desperate need of a refit. With new developments 'by the bay' underway, unfortunately this hostel will probably loose its view soon too.

They had a quiz every night to win a bottle of bubbly. We were cooking dinner the first night when it was on but he said we could play from there - needless to say we didn't win but it was fun! They also …

    Woke up about 8:30am. Packed up the rest of our things then went and handed the key in to checkout. We then went and made breakfast.

    Went and gave the pot and plates back, then headed to the bust stop. Just missed the bus.
    Waited for the next bus to come along and got it to the next stop.

Rude. And ignorant. I did not like her. She apologied in the morning but it was too little too late! Especially as she …

    Most of the boat was feeling very delicate this morning which was quite amusing for me, at least one person was being sick over the side of the boat as we sailed back to the harbour. I managed to check in to the hostel as soon as I got back and was so pleased to have a proper shower and wash my hair! The shower cubicles had half naked men on the …
