    Hostel is different then others , large beds for couples, great bins to store your bags. We asked to switch rooms because the first layout was very Inconvenient for two people and they did it without a problem. Showers have hot water (which is amazing for a hostel). Pools need better upkeep but the food at the bar makes up for it at a cheap price. I would suggest couples try to get a bottom bunk. It’s just more convenient when you don’t want to disturb your partner.

    Decent place to stay
    The beds are super comfortable and clean. I liked the proximity to town and the ADO bus station. The bar staff are friendly and the food/drinks are delicious and cheap. However, I had a hard time sleeping in my dorm due to constant music playing from downstairs. Also the payment system isn't great (you need to load money before you buy anything and so you must guess how much you'll use in the duration of your stay or you will not get the money back). Also the pool was dirty the whole time I was there :(

    Great value for money and nice cashless concept
    I stayed in one of the design rooms with my gf and it was great. Always very clean and the private cabins offer excellent value for money. The food is excellent and the drinks from Alex the barman are exceptional. The food and drink prices are very cheap too. 2 dollars for a Smirnoff and coke!

    Cozy and hip
    Loved the vibe as we rolled up. Very welcoming and fun atmosphere, modern. Rooms were very cozy and great for the minimal traveler looking to spend most of their time exploring!

    Very good 8.0
    Our stay didn’t start well because the map was wrong so it took us a while to find where the hostel was. Then the private room was a photo rendering so it was disappointing as the hotel was not totally finished as well. BUT Samuel the manager was AMAZING on trying to find a solution and to accommodate us. Samuel and the whole team did their best to help us and make our stay good. They went beyond their job and we did appreciate their kindness even all that was not their fault.
