The free shuttle took more than two hours to come. And when it did, the ride was more than just haphazard. When we reached the hostel, our bookings were not made, even though we paid. It was a horrid start to out holiday. Yet the counter staff took it in his stride and found a replacement room for us which was even better than what we had booked. He gave us free internet vouchers and also treated us warmly. And that was all that mattered.
Location wise, situated in the red light district, just be carefulwith your belongings at night. Great food around and near to the train station. Definitely worth returning.
