The hostel actually surprised me. Inside, the rooms were basic, with your classic hostel accommodation, i.e. bunkbeds and other furnishings were sparse. I was in a six-person co-ed room and it was very spacious and airy. We had three windows too, which helped keep it cool. Apart from the beds, we had a huge mirror and a sink. The rooms were very clean, as were the bathrooms and shower rooms. A place in the six-bed room cost me about 3000dr at the time (about €10), but it’s probably a bit more by now.
Downstairs, the reception is all singing and all dancing! Services available include: 24-hour reception, international telephones, bureau de change, 24-hour internet access, tourist information, left luggage, free lock-up for valuables, fax facilities, and a ticket buying service for local tours, ferry, plane, and bus tickets, etc. A very impressive list! Downstairs again is the Underground Bar, with lovely air-conditioning! Here you can get practically any drink you want and food from noon (ish) right through to the late evening. The bar is a good place to relax if you can’t be bothered to go out into the city of a night. The Aphrodite does serve breakfast, though you have to pay, and there is a wide selection of very cheap choices.
I found the staff to be very friendly and knowledgeable about the city, and would definitely recommend this place to anyone on a budget holiday.

On a supermarket side street,
I found a place to rest my feet.
I know the way I want to stay,
This place I found is full of charm,
Good people chilled and always calm.
Rest your head and go to bed,
To greet me in reception,
Is a girl of such exception.
She is to me I think to be,
I have a smile upon my face,
I feel the magic of this place.
Give a cheer I like it here,
Cool the air is in the bar
From this place I can’t go far.
Thank you sue for all you do,
Now should I go or should I stay,
What I’d give for one more day
Aphrodite Aphrodite Aphrodite.
