This is a great hostel but the island retreats are very very cold slept with a woollen blanket a sheet and 2 doonas and was still freezing I am actually sick now from how cold it was.
Staff are very friendly and kitchen was clean but a bit small the wood fire in the common area was the only way to get warm unless you went across to the Buddha bar which a lot of ppl do.
Lady on the tour desk wasn't much help it's like she didn't want to be there.
Worth the $32 per night had a great time but would only visit in summer due to being so cold in winter.
Cafe on site with $6 dinners was a great change if u didn't want to cook.
No TV room at this hostel!!!
OVERALL WOULD GIVE A 8 OUT OF 10
