The Britannia would be an ok hostel if it was priced a little more fairly. We were paying around 28/29 dollars a night to stay there and it wasn't really worth it. I don't know if the Chinese woman is the owner or the manager but the way she acts is completely unprofessional. If she's the owner I wouldn't be surprised. The kitchen is covered with cockroaches and there aren't enough units for the amount of people that are there, even out of peak season when we stayed there. The bedding arrangements are disgusting, when you check out you just take your sheet and pillow case with you, so the actual cover is never washed, there was one that smelt of urine in our 8 bed dorm which we kept away from us, if an 8th person came they wouldn't have been happy. Aside from that I think asians are just used to being treated poorly, the asian woman seems to regard people as cattle on a conveyor belt bringing in money and since a third of the guests are asian they don't complain. Without naming names, if you take a 5 minute walk and ask around you will hear or see a better hostel that is cleaner and cheaper. There are 2 actually within 10 minutes. The only good thing about this place is the location, I think that's why people stay there and why it will always be busy, but it doesn't really deserve to succeed as a business anymore.
