The Hostelz.com Review

Supernova Hostel is tranquil and relaxing -- the perfect respite from the buzz of the nearby falls. The hostel also has the potential to be social and fun as it comes complete with a large room with pool, pinball, music, and a mini-bar.

The Location

The hostel is very easy to find -- it is two buildings in from the main road that the buses use (so catching a bus or taxi is straightforward). It is wise to keep a look out for the building, as it does not stand out. The hostel is very near to supermarkets, places to eat, and to town. The neighborhood is really quiet and sleepy, so a good night's sleep is not a problem. Parking is available on the road outside.

Rooms and Bathrooms

Dorms (up to six beds) and private rooms are available -- all are in good condition and spacious and airy with most of the facilities you require like space for luggage and air conditioning. All doors come complete with fully functional locks. The bathrooms are in good condition, the desired heat of the water is easily found, and there is space to change as well as space for your items while you use the bathroom.

Common Spaces

There are several common spaces throughout the hostel, including a well equipped, self-catering kitchen on the main top level. There are a few ants around the bins and on the surfaces, but this is not problematic. Next to the kitchen is the dining area, where the free breakfast of cake, toast, jams, fresh fruit, juice, tea, and coffee is served. A TV with a small selection of DVDs is next to reception. A sole desktop computer with internet is stationed here but it is not in use. Wi-Fi is available for free so bring your laptop/notebook if you want access with your stay. Outside seating is available in the back garden and on the pleasant veranda on the side of the building. A hammock and other comfortable chairs add to the relaxing mood.

Downstairs is one of the hostel's strong points. There is a cozy, large room complete with pool table that is available for free. For a small price, you can also play the vintage pinball machine. A small mini-bar is also located downstairs if you want to have a drink. Music adds to the overall ambiance of the place and even though the hostel is chilled and relaxed, it is also a social one with plenty of room for conversation with fellow guests.

Summary

Supernova hostel gives a strong, positive overall impression -- it is well worth the visit.
