          We cleaned and painted during the Wet Season, and our current backpacker staff are taking pride in keeping the hostel clean (please see more recent reviews). We still have the breakfast: cereals, toast, crumpets, yogurt, muffins etc, and free laundry, and have upgraded the free...More

          We have new management, and new cleaning staff, and reopened earlier this year (2017) after spring cleaning, routine pest control, and a fresh coat of paint. The wifi has been upgraded too.

          Warm inviting atmosphere, although I appreciate this is largely due to the people staying there at the time. The room was the biggest one seen in a hostel so far and cleaned daily. The pool was also cleaned daily and serviced weekly I think. Free...More
