This is definitely nicer than an average hostel and it should teach other run down places that you can still be budget without being filthy.
The rooms are spotless. Aircon only comes on from 10pm - 10am which is a bit of a bummer and hot water between 6am-11am and 3pm-11pm.
The staff are very helpful but the price of tours and shuttles seems to vary based on what time of day you ask.
If you are on a budget there are free hot springs that any local or taxi driver can tell you how to get to a hell of alot cheaper.
Good clean hostel and would recommend.
