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

The right place to stay, lots of backpackers and it's in the center with all the restaurants and bars etc. Rooms where good, the fans did their job in the dorm and free breakfast is always a victory. They rent out bicycles and scooters and arrange bus tickets and visas, but when you your own transportation you can go to... More

We had planned to stay 2 nights but checked out after one night as we had massive bed bugs in our bed. Other people left too. I was in the tiger dorm, the nicer of the 3 dorms. Yet they were big fully grown bed bugs! They didn't question us when we asked to leave early they very easily knew... More

This hostel only has dorm rooms so only suits backpackers who do not care for privacy. The staff is rather nice and the services offered are very various (tour bookings, bus tickets...). Prices ares really fair, whether for the dorm beds or for the different ticket bookings. The hostel is also clean, one drawback is the bathrooms, they only have... More

I stay in Anaconda Dorm, a bit dark but all is clean, with a reading light and safe locker. The cotmmon place on ground floor is perfect for those who wanna... More
