This place was ok. Wasn't too keen on the location, the staff were nice but not too friendly. The place was a bit run down and seemed quite manic but the value was good. Good for solo travellers like myself and the guests were really nice.

I don't understand why this hostel has as high ratings as it does. It is not in a good location, we felt like we were staying in a crack den. Not a nice area.. The building it is in is not pleasant and the rooms are horrible. This hostel is not cheap and the rooms stank of damp and paint.... More

Felt like I was stepping in to a persons home. The staff used the shared kitchen, felt like I was stepping in to there home. If I left my phone to charged when I was going to the toilet they come after with it. Asked about things and she didn't get answer. Check out, I felt kicked out

Not a bad place to stay for shorter trips. The staff is helpful, but it can be difficult to communicate with them at times if you don't speak their language. The 10 person dorm was difficult to sleep in, there are no personal lights so the ceiling light is often on and although there is AC, the room can get... More

We stayed here for nearly a week. It was a nice secure hostel, had a code on the door and everything. Great location. Was even quiet for the most part. The one issue I had was that the showers, which we were told would be warm were not. If you went down the hall to the shared bathroom they were... More

We booked into a double bed for 3 nights, from the hostel world page it said the 2 types of double rooms (standard and basic) both had AC and a fan. We were put in a room with only a fan and no windows (it did have its plus side as it was pitch black and no noise from outside)... More

Arriving in a country you don't know, you may feel a bit lost and sometimes uncomfortable. That did not happen thanks to the VERY friendly staff, who was very helpful and answered all my questions with a large smile. I had good internet inside of my room - important cause I work as a freelancer. Of course sometimes there was... More

The Most dirtiest place I've ever seen! This hostel is a dangerous place. A lot of junkies in the street. You don't wanna walk trough that neighbourhood. I booked into a single bed room with air condition. Wasn't the cheapest around. Even the taxi driver asked me why I choose it...
