Great location with value for money.
This hotel has got everything. I upgraded to.a single room and was very comfortable. It was close to the waterfront. Restaurants had its own bar and restaurant. Tours could be booked at the tour desk. The staff were very friendly

It’s a cool hostel, only thing it lacked for some reason was a good hostel vibe. Has the set up for it but for some reason it still lacks the atmosphere.
