I've stayed here before which is why I returned. The problems with this place are: lack of hygiene by morning staff when putting out the light breakfast (handling the bathroom trash and then going into the kitchen and taking out the bread and spreads without washing your hands is disgusting!), a shower head which is due to be replaced (cost of a new shower head = 70 pesos), mattresses in the "female" dorm which are clearly too old to be slept in. Actually, you can't sleep in them because the springs poke you in the back), very few outlets if you need to plug in (only one in each dorm I think), staff who typically either lie to you (the local manner of doing things) or aren't interested in helping and a really, really worthless night employee who needs to be let go and replaced. A better job for him would be in an internet cafe. Oh, and there isn't a women's dorm or a men's dorm - they are just whatever is financially convenient for the day.
