We thought that FF was an awesome place to hang out and relax for a few days. They're about a 15min walk from town but have free bikes to use if you want to get around. The rooms were clean and the staff were very friendly.

The exterior shots of the outdoor area and pool make the hostel appear a lot bigger than it is, when in reality it is very compact. The rooms especially, we found to be extremely cramped whereby as many bunk beds as physically possible have been squeezed in to maximise capacity. My main concern during our stay was that on the...

This was a nice place, very trendy and interesting. They have lockers for your stuff, but you need to bring your own lock. The staff was friendly and accommodating. They boast an excellent location, but it's a 10 minute walk to the store, the beach, downtown, etc.

2 of us stayed in a 10 bed dorm, seemed warm at first, but only proceeded to get extremely hot over the night. It was 20C outside, and over 35 inside by morning. The room smelled so bad from everyone sweating it had a taste to it. I asked to change us after the first night, hostel world showed availability...

From unclean facilities, to unhelpful and hostile staff, F&F hostel is most probably the worst hostel I have ever stayed in. On the night of a big 'party' at the hostel, with no pre warning or signs, after we got in the pool we were aggressively shouted at staff to leave the pool as apparently it was shut. We got...

My boyfriend & I stayed at this hostel for 2 nights, and were very disappointed with it. We were in room 9, which is on the bottom floor tucked away in a corner with 1 small window, causing it to be extremely humid inside the room. The back wall is also shared with the building next door where amateur musicians...

I would love to say that my stay at F&F was incredible as it had a lot of things on my 'perfect hostel' list - bit unfortunately I pretty much hated every minute of being there. The atmosphere is awful & I think it's down to the staff. They're more interested in partying and then being hungover the next day....

We spent there just 1 night. We had a private room with a bathroom next to the reception.no noise was heard during night. The bathtub seemed little bit ugly as there was a constant leak of the water an the tub was dirty. The other equipment was ok. The courtyard is lovely: a small swimming pool ( did not used...
