Genuinely one of the best hostels I've stayed in. The beds are beautifully comfortable, you have your own light and 2 power outlets. A good free breakfast. There's two bathrooms with good hot showers in each room and the staff couldn't do enough for you. They helped me book a bus and rang up the companies to arrange taking my...

We stayed here in a 12 bed dorm for one night. As it is low season there was only one other person in the room. It was clean, beds were comfy, food was good and reasonable priced and the stuff is very friendly. Breakfast was included and we got a free beer as well. ;)

Why Not is one of the best hostels I have stayed at. Their private room prices are comparable to dorm bed prices at hostels on the same block. Their staff are incredibly helpful and friendly - there have been many instances of this, but two that stand out were when multiple staff members offered to take me either shopping or...
