I stayed here with to of my friends in a dorm for a night just becuase we alredy payed for it. Well the dorm was dirty, dark, and smelled like smoke. I'll try to explaint who are the dorms, porbably it was a place where they have chikens before, so they just divided it into dorms with a terrible ventilation and lighting. They also offfer locker, but you must buy the lock. The mattres are tho worse just imagine you can feel the wood under it.
Then the in the kitchen area, the stove didn't work, actually set on fire when a woman was trying to cook.
The night that we stayed were a lot of locals staying there too, and they showed no respect for anyone they were making noise until 2:00 a.m. and then start again at 6:00 a.m.
I have travel like a backpaker around the world and definitely this is one of the worse places to stay. There other better and cheaper place on the are
