  • Good value for money place, good location, nice environment. However, staff seemed a bit distant,they didn't have the natural friendliness of the best hostels. Not sure what the deal was with breakfast -- maybe I missed it from sleeping in. Could do with more thorough information/instructions on arrival. Free Wifi was good. Wasn't incredibly clean; e.g. sticky stuff next to my bed, bathroom was a bit gross, etc. Could do with some larger lockers e.g. for storing laptop.

  • It was very clean, the staff was nice, flexible, and totally welcoming. There were real fun activities throughout the week that were enjoyable, well-planned, and nicely displayed on a board outside office. I heard about parking problems, drove a car, and couldn't be more satisfied. I was able to park my car right in the secure compound.

  • I thought Banana Bungalow was ace. I didn't like Hollywood much, but really enjoyed sitting in the garden and chilling out in the hostel.

  • Nice place, not in the center of the city, but best place if you just want to see Holywood. Lot of fun and night parties if it is what you are looking for!
