This is a new hostel in Georgetown, so although there is a restaurant advertised, it isn't completed yet. Please bare this in mind when you book this hostel.
That being said, this hostel didn't disappoint us. The bunk beds are very comfortable and very sturdy. The hostel is very clean, tidy and modern. Each guest gets their own locker, with a power point inside to charge your valuables! And each bed also has 2 power points next to their bed too.
Whilst we were staying there, the owner was away on business but a lovely English girl was running the place. She was very knowledgable about the area and was able to recommend restaurants in the area and tell us which buses to get on to go to different places which was very helpful. The location of this hostel is great and very easy to find!
Breakfast is one bread roll or roti per person at the moment until the restaurant opens. Your breakfast is available all day, and is collected fresh from local people each morning!
The shared bathrooms are great, very clean and the shower is at the right temperature!
All in all, we had an excellent stay at clockwise and even extended our stay for no trouble at all. This hostel is several levels above the others in the area that cost the same price. Choose Clockwise!
