I stayed here early July 2013 and as I was travelling on my own, was a little nervous about what to expect! I need not have worried, the staff were helpful on arrival, and I met so many fantastic people who were all to willing to hang out, go to the beach, out drinking and to disneyland etc! The room was a lil average, I stayed in a 6 bed dorm room and it was way too hot - woke up at 6am due to the heat. There was a fan, but it was pretty ineffectual. The bathrooms were clean and satisfactory, the breakfast was also pretty good! All in all a fantastic place to stay and would highly recommend. Unfortunately it gave me high expectations for another hostel, which was definitely lacking!
