The staff were friendly and willing to help most of the time (they are there 24 hours). BUT it seemed all of the upstairs rooms had a big problem with bed bugs!! Moved rooms twice, willing to give them another try, only to be seriously attacked again..

This backpackers is offering the basic rooms and breakfast. I enjoyed my breakfast at the lodge with the good atmosphere and there is TV as well. They also have kitchen to be used, it was clean and nice. When you're planning to do a tour, the receptionist are ready to guide.

Did not see anyone cleaning the bathrooms area during our 2 days stay. The fridge in the public area was really messy too. On top of that, we were awaken at 4am by the neighbour's... More
