    Great hostel in the heart of Cairn, close to all amenities and harbour. Room spacious with comfy bed. unfortunately fellow travellers did not respect outdoor balcony area being closed after 10 pm and stayed up chatting and smoking till 2 AM- perhaps hostel could review their procedures to ensure all guests a good night sleep.

    Good hostel with great common space.

    Good hostel with great common spaces. There are activities during the week. A friend and I stayed in a double room, it was very basic but met our needs with air conditioning and a fan to keep it cool.

  • 2.0.Poor

    We got a private room, and paid actual hotel prices for it as the reviews were so good. It was horrible - the room itself was okay, albeit very basic, but the amenities were terrible. The bathroom - which was meant to be shared between all the private rooms - was disgusting, unclean and gross, and without any toilet paper. There were meant to be two shared bathrooms available exclusively for all of the people staying in the private rooms, however one of the doors had been completely kicked off the hinges of one bathroom so it couldn’t be used. We notified the front desk and no resolution was offered. So we just had to wait for the one bathroom to become available whenever we needed to go to the toilet or shower. Worse yet, as much as those bathrooms were meant to be only for the private rooms, anyone from the dorms could access them too and so we were barely able to use them. Our room was positioned directly above the patio and so there was no opportunity for sleep as the noise was extreme throughout the night until about 3:30am. We had to be up at 6am to head to the airport, so that left us with a basically sleepless night and no decent bathroom amenities - all for the price of a proper hotel room, which this certainly was not. It was a very disappointing stay.
