This hostel is great! It's big, well conceived and well equipped. We stayed in a double room, big and clean and quiet. We had dinner at the hostel, the kitchen is huge, clean and well equipped. There are at least two lounge rooms, and both are cool, big and well furnished, and one has a nice view with big panoramic...

This is one of the best hostels I've stayed in for a long time. The kitchen is enormous! Possibly the best hostel kitchen I've ever seen. My partner and I stayed in a mixed 4-bed dorm which was very comfortable and had a sink. There were plenty of bathrooms and showers, and everything was nice and clean. We bought a...

Stayed at the youth hostel for five nights and found it a very comfortable place to stay. There is also a very good drying room, a necessity in this part of the world. The kitchen is well laid out and spacious. Even when fully booked, the hostel never felt crowded and there was always space in the kitchen and dining...

It's... Okay. The site is basic and very boggy (camp on the edge the middle is water logged currently) the toilets and showers are okay but the girls shower was out of order and boys doesn't have a lockable door. Personally I will wild camp next time with a place that has views not a main road next to it.
