We stayed at Dragonfly Hostel for 2 nights in a private room (shared bathroom). Our room was off the rooftop bar/lounge area. While the bar was fun it did stay loud till about midnight each night.

Previous reviews complained of overcrowded dorms but found them to be normal. Upstairs patio is a nice place to hangout but inside it lacked a living...

I had a 8 bed dorm and everything was ok until I discovered that my sheets were not clean, full of hair etc. Kitchen was a nice suprise though, well equipped and there were pancakes for breakfast as well (for free). It is a typical party hostel and rooms are load as it is on a main road.

Clean backpackers hostel with comfy beds and hot showers. The best part was the rooftop patio. Breakfast was decent and the staff was friendly. Airport pick up was nice and on time. The burger night was affordable and tasty.
