“Mold, mosquitos and soiled mattresses...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

The security is great at this hostel as the front gate is generally always locked. The dank air in the hotel rooms is caused by walls which are persistently damp and which contain a fine, fuzzy white mold. If you know anything about mold and how they are always releasing spore into the air....

2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

The place is dark, dirty! There was no water at all in the faucet, no control to the air conditioning. The facilities are really poor, the pillows are defenitily not usable, There was also a terrible mustiness in the air. I am usually genereous on my ratings, but people form this property really need to work on many points to improve their place.
