The place is located just a few min walk from the beach. Breakfast is good and free but a bit early. The dinner is free but consists of a very small amount of rice and pork which can't be called "dinner" as you may have to buy something else for you also. The baths leak and are very few in...

Location wise it was awesome! I can give 5 stars for the location but otherwise just below average. You can access wifi only in the reception room/bar. no network in the rooms. Rooms were pretty small for 4 people and also the bunk-beds were not good, moving a lot and making noise. it was surprising to see only 3 showers...

Over all is good. If you want to stay in this place, remember to bring your own lock. And I hope they have better air condition than just ventilation machine, the room can get humid and smelly during hotter season.

I stayed in many hostels in my life, good and bad ones, but I did not like this one. Beds were very uncomfortable and whole place could use some remodeling. I hated bathrooms. Not much privacy because if someone opens the door, anyone passing by can see what is inside. Not too much privacy inside either. Showers were ugly and...

This is a "party hostel" as can probably tell from the other reviews. I'm not a partier at all, but I decided to book here a second time because of the good value, helpful staff, general cleanliness, and great location. There is free dinner which was surprisingly good. It is a different dish each day. But dinner is at 6:30...

The location of the hostel is perfect near to the beach and shopping malls but there is party and loud music all the time so it's for teenagers only although the hostel welcomes everyone regardless of age. The building needs a lots of repairs : showers that don't work, dryers out of service,etc. And for the free breakfast and dinner...
