    Stayed here twice in quick succession in a double room with shared bathroom. Rooms were small, but adequate and air conditioned with ceiling fans. Shared kitchen is ample to prepare meals, though could be improved with some more cutlery. There are heaps of stove tops...More

    It's a great hostel. There're a lot of free activities like free shuttlebus or free bbq. The stuff is also friendly and anything is clean. I stayed about 3 nights in a 4 bedroom. The kitchen is used but very clean.
