A hostel with a swimming pool means party time, and this place hosts a big one on the first Friday of every month. The pool and the extensive villa are home to a variety of dorms and private rooms. The courtyard has a central bar with a pool table, and there are plenty of spots to lounge around the pool.

The dorms come in air-con and fan varieties, plus there is a female dorm.
