I was booked into Budget accommodation in the house. DON'T do it. Terrible. Hot clammy dormitory on it's last legs. Horrible shower with a strange smell. The breakfast dining area is in the house which isn't bad but I felt overpriced for a hostel. I ate twice in 6 days.
The boat is better but an extra price which I felt on reflection was high for a hostel. Good showers, a bit tight in space, comfortable beds, low bunk space and difficult to manage privacy.Mixed accommodation which I didn't like and avoiding people you don't wish to interact with can be tough going!! Well positioned though some walking as only one bus from there. Getting to the airport from there is badly planned and a bit complicated. Allow adequate time. I was unlucky to experience SOME unfriendly staff and unhelpful greeting/welcome on arrival.Better when I paid more!
