stayed here for 4 nights in the 14-pp room. the room is pretty standard for a hostel: not a lot of spacing but at least it's kept cool and well AC'ed at night. there are hangers and space to hang up some clothes by the window - a nice touch.
the only (but major) downside was the check-out staff. both times when my friends and i checked out on different days, the staff said that we had a remaining balance to pay - something that came as a surprise to us because we had paid in full when we first checked in. my friend ended up paying his when he checked out a day earlier than us. knowing that, we checked with the lady the night before we checked out that we had paid for our rooming in full, but still the next day, the (different) staff guy sprung on us that we had some balance left to pay. we refused, obviously; plus they hadn't issued a receipt. the guy at the counter wouldn't believe us until he called up the manager to confirm, and only then did he let us go without having to pay this "balance."
still not really sure what this "balance" was supposed to be and there seems to be miscommunication/misunderstandings staff-to-staff and staff-to-guest. if we were never told about it when we checked in, we should not be surprised by it when we're checking out. not very cool.
