Nice and big property with pool. Helpful staff and a good bar nextdoor :) #beerpong and just a few minutes away from the city center. We had a big room but not the cleanest, with a loud air conditioner but everything else was just fine!

This place was okay- nothing super special. The location is PERFECT though. It's a great place if you want to go out drinking. We had an unpowered campsite and that was pretty good. You aren't allowed to byo alcohol into this place though.

We camped, so I can't speak for the hostel dorms themselves, but the camping amenities were foul. The toilet/shower block closest to the campsites had no electricity or water connected, but we were still encouraged to use these facilities. The other toilet block boasted toilets missing the flush buttons so you couldn't flush. Showers mouldy and had no hangers and...
