not great May 21, 2011
Made a mistake and booked the wrong hostel to our friends.
Our first time meeting the owner wasnt great He was quite patronising to my friend.
We shared a room with a woman from Johannesburg. All our beds were pushed together because it should have been a double room but they were overbooked. We had a bit of a cockroach infestation and luckily by that time we were able to move rooms. They fumegated the room we were originally in.
The new room was better with a single bed and bunk beds.
There are three seperate shower rooms and a two toilets one for women the other for men. Men tended to use whatever toilet they wanted.
The day before we were due to leave we were meant to be picked up for a trip to go shark cagediving. The bus never turned up so we went back in the hostel clearly very angry. The owner asked us what was wrong and after we explained He tried to help by phoning the company for us. He turned out to be a nice guy :)
