The manager was incredibly rude. I do not know why he was so rude. He seemed friendly at first and the only reason I can think of for his change of attitude was that I was not booking a tour due to an injury I have sustained. I stayed in a double the first night nd moved in a dorm... More

Ok, this place is 5 dollars a night. I cannot complain much beyond the fact we moved to a place for 7 and got hot water and a much cleaner room. Staff is really nice and if you are trying to stay as budget as possible this is a great way to do it. Just expect to get what you... More

Nothing here worked! Broken toilets, electricity was down and the loud generator kept cutting out. Impossible to recharge phone or have a shower. Broken bikes that they tried to rent out. The place was filthy and about a km from town centre. There is a backpacker atmosphere here though, so that was nice if thats what you're after.

I stayed here about a month ago and found the staff very sweet and they try very hard. For the price you really can't knock it. Great value, good people and delicious food... Though a lock on the bathroom door in the shared dorm and a shower that actually works would be great, that's my one complaint. Overall nice place,... More

I'm not sure if the previous reviews are about the same place where we stayed for few nights. The manager was very friendly when offering us the place but that's where his friendliness ended. In the evening he had a private party with friends and family after which he was not in a state any more to be dealing with... More

This hostel was cheap and cheerful. The rooms aren't great and the showers are pretty poor but they are warm and the beds are comfortable. There's a nice chill out area and the family that run the hostel are lovely. The food is also great! My main issue with it, was that it was largely exposed to the outside and... More
