My boyfriend and I stayed there for 4 nights.
We were in a 4 bed dorm. They are bunkless so this is a good point, everyone sleeps in a good bed. They just give you one sheet, no blanket. The 3 first night, it was very cold as they always leave the air con on, and you can switch off by yourself so it is annoying. We asked the reception to turn it off as they didn't want to give us blankets, but they couldn't even turn it off!!!! Finally, for the last night they gave us a blanket !
Rooms were very dirty, they don't vacuum under the bed, we found some clothes which weren't ours.
The hostel is pretty quiet which is good.
Bathrooms are TERRIBLE. Toilets are cleaned once a day i think, this is disgusting and smelly. Showers are cleaned once too, and they are very dirty...
We had a pretty bad experience with the kitchen, we wanted to boil some water, but the cattle weren't working, so we decided to do it on gas, but we needed a lighter to start it BUT we don't smoke.... So that was really annoying.
Location is perfect, 15 minutes walk from the bus station, and the shuttle to the airport stops just in front of the backpack.
