    Since my arrival I've been having a nice time at Amakaya Backpackers. The staff is very friendly and it's a home away from home experience that makes you feel at home. 5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 for hospitality and cleanliness.

    Good value and location. Bedroom too close to kitchen. People shouting at 5am in kitchen. Signs for silence should be up. Bedding did not seem to be washed. Sand grains fealt on sheets and sheet smell not fresh.
