Backpackers simple means hostel Mar 07, 2011
The hostel had literally just been taken over by new staff a few days before I arrived. At the minute, I think the old owners had let the place go a bit. The main reception area is very dark and dingey...old furniture...bar was not in use...no social events etc. The rooms theirselves were clean, very simple bed and a mirror - shared bathrooms again clean but run down iron doors etc. Swimming pool looked a bit abandoned wasnt sure if this was due to quiet season or whether it was disused. Breakfast was ok bit of tea, toast or cornflakes to set you on your way.
Over all great place if you just want to put your head down for the night and be out in the morning. Not ideal if your looking to meet other back packers, socialize maybe a bit of nightlife - this is not the place.
Hopefully the new owners will spuce this place up, it has a lot of potential to be a buzzing backpackers hostel just needs a lick of paint some social events and an open bar! :-)
