I booked it online, for 2 nights. When I arrived there, after a long walk from the bus station, I realized that it was a mistake.. The location is not that good.. It looks like a residential area, not one for tourists.. Since usually tourists go in the hostels to save money, it sucks if you have to pay for a bus to go almost anywhere..
The hostel is owned by a couple of old people, I think they where Japanese.. Heir English is not very good, and it can be a real problem, especially if you are not very good at English yourself.. When I arrived, the host told me he didn't receive the reservation.. I checked the website, and they do have my reservation.. Other problem, they want you to pay CASH.. Fortunately I still had the amount for 1 night, but it would have been a very big problem if I didn't.. They should say it on their announce online.. After almost 1 hour, trying to understand why didn't they have my reservation, I paid for the fist night, with the c hence to pay for the second the next day or leave in the morning.. They gave me the key to my dorm room..
The dorm room had 8 beds, each bed with a lamp (I tried two of them, none worked..), two or three chairs, and a few doors.. One of the doors is a closet.. The other one is the bathroom.. The bathrooms really needs to be upgraded.. There is a bathtub with shower (but taking a bath is forbidden...), the door doesn't close completely, and the sink was full of rust..
Both the bathroom and the room floor weren't very clean.. The bed was uncomfortable.. The curtains are like transparent, so they are useless, since when the sun rise, the light will get in.. The place is by quiet, but it's also cold!!! I was able to sleep only a few hours, because of the cold first and the sunlight after..
In the end, that's not even a real hostel.. It's probably the house of that man, who tried to modify it into a hostel, without success.. The price is too expensive of a place like that.. I suggest you to FIND ANOTHER HOSTEL.. Or pay more and stay in a hotel..
