The hostel was ok for the price, but don't go in thinking that you are getting a deal.
The hostel is located on the second floor of a very old building. You have to climb up a very long flight of stairs to get to the main room. The main living areas are cluttered with the owner's family's belongings, ash trays, and drying laundry. The kitchen area is greasy and not clean. I wouldn't recommend trying to use it.
The rooms are relatively spacious with lots of light. But there are mosquitoes in the room making it difficult to sleep at night. The walls have relatively new paint, but the job is amateur at best with paint peeling and smudge marks everywhere. The bathrooms aren't kept clean, but have a build up grim that makes it unpleasant to wash. It would be nice if there was a rack for hand towels and clean bathmats.
The food was fine. Pretty much the same as you would get anywhere. It's a nice touch that they serve you breakfast in your room. But I'm sure that's to keep you out of the main living areas.
There isn't a computer there. But the wifi worked after the owner restarted the router.
The hostel is a long but do-able walk from the bus station. But its a far cry from the hills where the main restaurants and vistas are located. We spent between 3.000 and 4.000 pesos each time we wanted to leave the house.
