Stayed in private double. Location is good, and room was clean, but everything else about this hostel is pretty bad.

The room was like a jail cell, with only one tiny window leading out to the hallway (which meant the hallway light, on all night, shone directly into our eyes). Bathroom was the smallest we have had in our time at hostels. No soap or towels.

Day staff couldnt speak a word of English, and didnt try to find anyone that could which is disappointing for a hostel that is trying to market themselves as a hostel for international travelers. We ended up trying for 15 minutes to get towels and cancel our next two nights accomodation, but was unable to get the point across. No maps or suggestions about things to do or see.

The night staff did speak English, but said the owner didn't tell her how much they should charge us for the one night, so I had to go through and talk them through my hostel world booking sheet and explain how much I owed. Eventually we worked something out and we got some towels.

Don't stay here if you have any other options if you are a couple. Didn't see the dorm rooms, so they could be a better set up. Hopefully they will get the staff arrangement sorted soon.
