What people are saying

It was the best hostel I ever been (and I did so many...). The kitchen is clean and spacious. They clean it 3 times a day I reckon. Few sofas everywhere (TV room, 1st and 3rd floors), spacious laundry as well. The location is perfect : night life around and the hostel is pretty calm if you wanna sleep. Thank you global's team !

Perfect location next to the lagoon. Staff very friendly and helpful. Room was comfortable with air conditioning. Communal areas really clean and overlook the water. One of the best hostels I’ve stayed in.

Centrally located. Booked a private room and it honestly didn’t feel like we were in a hostel - rooms were comfy, clean and I think because the private rooms were situated on a different level it helped make it more peaceful and private.
