Stayed 1 night in Jul 2019


  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

They state in the conditions to stay to keep noise down to a low minimum for the comfort of all guests, the whole time up till at least midnight all I could here was people stomping around and yelling it was very noisy this was other guests but also the staff from what looked like they were cleaning they made a lot of noise bashing around out front of my room up and down stairs and just generally being very loud and abrupt On arrival I had to wait over half an hour for any staff to be there to check me in and they seem to not be very organised in general at all I returned my key in check out but still haven’t received my key deposit back either

Better stay away - it's awful

I wonder where the food reviews come from! Do not choose Sundancer in order to enjoy your holiday. The hostel is dirty and the Asian living there are rude and noisy the whole night. It is not possible to get some sleep at all. The house is full of rules written on the walls, but no one bothers and the staff does not care.
