Liked the hostel a lot. It is centrally located, the staff is helpful and everything is very clean. It seems that many people use it as a base beforethey go on a tour, therefore it is a great base to meet some pasrticipants already the day before. Cons: Bunk beds were a bit noisy and the water in the pool was pretty disgusting.

Air con was nice to have but wasn't controllable. Therefore running all night and some noise. Was a very pleasant stay.

Only stopped over for one night - bit awkward to park hired car - had to move between overnight and daytime parking. Excellent kitchen. Loud outdoor movie late in evening. Great location for base into red centre.
