I was amazed how much I could get for this small price at Buba House. The staff is friendly and attentive to all people staying in their hostel. Very nice light breakfast in the morning and good music in the lobby/kitchen. The kitchen was always clean with enough number of dishes and place. The 6-person room is spacious with space... More
