4/10 Fair

Yes its a backpacker place. But the rooms and the whole area needs bit TLC. We had unpleasant view of some male backpackers have a shower in donga next to us cause the bathroom window was smash and the glass was not really private.

2/10 Poor

Staff very unfriendly, not professional, when they work because it suppose to be open in a morning but is no one there or just a note saying " im back in 1h", the receptionists are not organised at all. The worst camping and hostel I stayed. I very do not recommend this place

4/10 Fair

I booked a stay in a female only room and during the night 3 people entered late and one was male which made me quite uncomfortable.

8/10 Very good

Good vibes, quiet rooms. The workers were very accommodating and lovely to talk to. Only downside was that the bathroom didn't have a drain, or shower curtain to stop shower water going all over the floor. Also didn't have a plug for the spa bath. The spa bath was also not working.
