I found the location of this hostel to be very close walking distance to plenty of shops, eating places, and near by to plenty of bus stations. The staff were very helpful and at the same time very busy always cleaning/maintaining the grounds. The interior smelled of fresh paint and the bathrooms had what looked like very nice ceramic tiled floors and walls in the shower. Used the laundry facilities which worked just fine. Had a splendid time with the other folks rooming there and with the staff too! I would recommend this place for any ages.
