Stayed here before and made a trifling mention in my review about how small the bowls in the kitchen were. A few weeks later, back again, I find the kitchen well stocked with fantastic huge bowls. So... this time I was tremendously disappointed that they have not yet replaced the ground floor area with a large heated swimming pool, with reception and bar on an island in the middle. See you next time!

Due to the location, I really recommend this hostel and I am planning to stay there during my second visit. However, number of toilets and bathrooms are a bit limited compared to other HI facilities but they were clean overall.
