          Great location, but the hostel itself was very noisy and not too clean. Really friendly staff, has a small bar area and a reasonable place to buy breakfast in the morning.

          It's got everything a traveller needs... beds, showers, toilets, chill area and BAR. That's all you need and it is in a great location, walkable distance to the waterfront but also near to bars and places to eat. The people are cool, mostly just drifters but all with the same mindset of a backpacker and will help with anything, I would recommend this place to anyone looking for good budget - no fuss accommodation.

          Once again, I have fallen in love with another country. I am
