Positive Reviews

A lovely pool area

The pool is a great place to sit back and relax in the afternoon. They have sun loungers, and you can get drinks at the bar all day. It's ideal for meeting other guests and is kept in impeccable condition. This is certainly the most loved facility in the hotel.

Chilled out staff

The people that work here are very relaxed, and it takes quite a lot to ruffle their feathers. They are a great bunch and will do all they can to help you out. They create a great atmosphere that makes all the guests feel at ease.

Excellent food

The food isn't what you expect from a hotel that caters to backpackers. It's incredibly delicious, and the restaurant is so popular that you may have to wait for a table. The prices are reasonable, and the menu is quite extensive.

Negative Reviews

Deposits are a bit much

The deposits that people staying in the dorm rooms have to pay are outrageous. There's one for your bed line and another one for your plates and cups. This makes people feel very uncomfortable as they have to ask to get the money back.

Noisy at night

This is a party hotel, and the rooftop bar is a very lively place in the evening. This means that the place isn't very suitable for young kids and families. It gets quite noisy at night and even when the music stops you still have to deal with people making their way home.
