The hostel is located about 15 minutes walk from the main area of town and the transit centre but they run a complimentary van service there and back on the hour, every hour, from 8AM until 5pm. They will also collect you from the transit centre when you arrive.

The staff are nice and friendly. There is a good atmosphere there as everyone chills out around the common courtyard outside the reception. The dorms and apartments are located around the courtyard, along with the communal kitchen. There is also a bar that serves food too (no alcohol allowed on the premises), a volleyball court (they arrange volleyball matches every other day at 6pm) and a basketball net and a nice pool area. There is also free wifi around this area, not in the rooms though! There is no air conditioning in the rooms, only fans, but we didn't find this a problem as the fan was exceptionally strong.

When we arrived we were upgraded from a dorm to an apartment where we got a twin room. We shared the apartment with two other people who were in a seperate room. The apartment was sparsely furnished but had a kitchen and a tv with some ok channels. You have to pay $5 deposit for a set of crockery (bowl, plate, mug and cutlery).

We realised the fridge in the apartment wasn't working and we had bought a lot of food that we were afraid would expire in the heat but they fixed the problem very quickly.
