The location is terrible. Taxi drivers will constantly get lost because it is located on a back alley behind a grocery store. The road it's on shares the same name of a popular road more in town which is where we found every taxi driver taking us when given the address. If you do have to stay here print out... More

Cosmopolitan Hostel is comfy, looks good, feels safe, is well located, has a decent breakfast, and helpful staff. There is a large kitchen, a spacious common room, and a nice courtyard for drinks in the evening. What you make of it is further up to you and the rest of the crowd.

On arrival I was very impressed. The court yard is lovely and the main reception desk is modern making the feel of the place a breath of fresh air. That breath of fresh air was soon disrupted by the nasty stench of the drains from the kitchen area! The bathrooms and toilets were also quite poor with the toilet seat... More
