Stayed there twice so far in the 4-bed female room. Rooms and linen are very clean. Convenient location just 1 min walk to the shopping street. I didn't use the kitchen but looked clean and tidy. Classic YHA. A very comfortable hostel.

The room I was in was spacious enough with lock boxes under the beds. This meant that there wasn't much room between the bottom and top bunks. Bathrooms flooded as the shower wasn't sealed properly against the floor.
Kitchen large and kept very clean.

Central location, lots of people hassling you if you left the hostel in the late afternoon/evening.

This hostel is very clean like most of the YHA's.
The stuff is super friendly and helpful.
The location is lovely!!! It's 1 minute walk to the mall and the central square.
I only stayed 2 nights, but I thought it was a great hostel.

This hostel is a very clean one like most of the YHA's.
The stuff is super friendly and customers get involved in social
activities.
It's 1 minute walk to the todd mall, so very central.
It's next to the river, so you can go for a run if you like.
Also parking place available.

I only stayed one night, but I thought it was a great hostel. The staff were very helpful with booking buses and tours. The location is great - right off the main plaza. I had originally planned to stay in a different hostel, but it was so cramped and dirty that I changed my mind and came to the YHA and I was very glad I did.

One tip: if they are having the $5 BBQ, get there early. I waited 15 minutes and all the food was gone!

quiet hostel, excellent location.
cleanliness of kitchen sometimes not great but good storage space for food in fridges.
Air con in rooms is good but at times it is chilly!! saying that, you couldnt sleep without it.
swimming pool small but very welcome due to the heat in this part of the world!!!

Room Tip: we had a 4 bed dorm and we were the only 2 in it which was nice
