This is the worst experience I've ever had a abroad, but perhaps I should consider myself lucky. I woke up at 4:30 am to catch my 7 am flight out of the country at this hostel. There was no desk attendant when I got up. The doors of the hostel were locked, and there was no key. The telephones didn't even work, so I couldn't call the owner or the police to let me out. I was literally trapped in the hostel, with no way out short of climbing over the walls. Essentially, I missed my flight, and consequently had to pay several hundred dollars to rebook because of the irresponsibility of this hostel. Unless you too, desire to have the same experience, I would recommend booking at another hostel.
On top of this, they advertised air conditioning. There was no air conditioning. But whatever, I could deal with that, just so long as I wasn't a character in a cliched horror script.
