Looking for a hostel?

Budget travelers know there's no better way to make the most of their trip than by staying at a hostel: Save money for exploring during the day, and swap stories with fellow backpackers in the shared kitchen or bar in the evening. Dorm-style bedrooms with shared bathrooms are standard hostel fare, but private rooms are also available for those willing to pay a little more.

    They had HAIR CONDITIONER. In a hostel. Not just shampoo and body wash, but also CONDITIONER. Couldn't believe it. And it was so good! Also the shampoo. The location was bomb, pool in the middle, great amenities. Breakfast had options for everyone. Loved that they had sugarfree fruit yoghurt. Otherwise we had everything, even earplugs in the room, a mini fridge, hair dryer. We were missing nothing
