We stayed here for a night, comparing to the first guesthouse we thought it was better choice. Everything worked just fine, a basic needs hostel with bunk. Only that we have to get down to ground floor for shower and share the only two or three toilet. The only scary part was the night watch fellow I think, he switched... More

Really nice hostel in a great location. The dorm rooms are nice (although be prepared to climb lots of stairs!!) and the showers are luxury! The tv room is also soo good, it's so comfortable and a great way to meet people whilst watching a movie! Really nice staff and the free breakfast had great options!

I really found this hostel to be quite poor, the beds were damp and had a pit in the middle so it hurt my back while sleeping. They had no luggage room for when you were checking in or out, the breakfast was pretty poor as well. Showers and toilets were not clean, and there was very few of them... More

Fairly clean, friendly staff, good Internet, okay shower but a great place to meet other travelers. It seems that this place is a good hub to travel elsewhere in the region. The staff was helpful, they helped me find good transportation to other city.

Good location for a few nights, nothing special about it. Bit annoying that the toilets/showers are on the bottom floor if you are staying on the 3rd floor. Air con works well and the free breakfast is Ok

I am very torn between 2 or 3 stars for this place. Landed on 3 because the staff is very friendly. I came here with my wife for 3 nights. Got here at night in the rain so we didn't want to shop around. We were planning on finding a better hostel the next day but met some friends here... More

The only reason I didn't rate this lower than average, is because the staff are quite friendly and helpful, breakfast is included and the location is actually very good. That's about it for the positives. Booked online for a 12 person dorm but were placed in a 20 person dorm. I let that one slide, as the other dorm looked... More

We stayed in a 24-bed dorm for two nights. The dorms were clean as were the facilities. Wifi is choppy in the bedrooms but ok in the communal area. There is access to computers, drinks and a locked storage space under the bunks. There is no lock on the dorm so make sure you have a padlock for your storage.... More
