          freindly, great pool and garden area. Even after check out time you can still hang out and use all the facilites. Only down side is the train that runs past, not the hostel's fault but super annoying all the same, If possible try and get a room at the back under the hostel as opposed to one outside, much quieter, not so much nosie from the train. Recommend this above the Lonely Planet recommended hostels.

          Needs a lot of love, looking a little shabby round the edges but has the basics, internet, TV, just about enough cuttlery and friendly staff.

          We stayed in double room with fan and shared bath. Our room was spartan and clean but lacking charm. The shared areas are attractive with reggae constantly playing on the various sound systems.. Many places to hang out. The garden with pool is well maintained and inviting. Quick (4 hour) laundry service. Showers are warm (not hot). Friendly travel advice and service on site. Nice bank of computers and wifi to keep in touch. Helpful staff...We didn't use the shared kitchen but it appeared to be quite crowded at times.

          The adjoining restaurant served decent food in the loud bar area. We found great budget food at the soda (open till 5:00pm) nearby around the corner and local bus stops block and a half away. Pizza Hut and a decent Sushi place is 3 or 4 blocks away.

          Good for a brief stay. A bit hectic for longer stays.
