Our room was cosy, clean, and the air-conditioning worked. Because the hostel is so comfortable, guests tend to hang around and chat. Don’t let the distance from the Esplanade put you off either. It’s only a relaxed 15-minute walk and Tropic Days provide a bus service also.
The only negative thing I can say is that they were a bit slow in replying to email bookings. Apart from that, it’s first rate.
