The Holiday Village is a truly genuine hostel. Comfy rooms, clean bathrooms and kitchen, friendly staff from the bus pick-up and large open communal table areas to support the awesome social atmosphere. Would stay again without a doubt.

Rooms and kitchen really clean, central location, lots to offer in the way to tours and social gatherings. Staff always around the place and extremely friendly and helpful. Sam Turner was particularly welcoming to myself and all the backpackers in the hostel, providing assistance with whatever was needed! Highly recommend!
