I intended to stay 4 nights and only stayed one. Previous persons bed sheets were left on my bed. I was told they would be changed at 4pm! I changed them myself at 6.30pm. When I advised who I believed was the manager just so she knew what happened she was abusive, rude and was shouting at me. So I simply checked out. The bathrooms were filthy. There is no hot water upstairs. There's a clock tower opposite the hostel which dings on the hour every hour throughout the night. They have a Dutch backpacker working at reception who is more interested in watching videos on the computer than providing any sort of service. The hostel looks nothing like the pictures on their website.
I also had m credit card skimmed and needed my bank to call the hostel. I was told I would be charged for any incoming calls. When I asked why there was a charge she couldn't explain why.
The Lonely Planet got this recommendation wrong! There are cheaper cleaner options nearby. For example the Caribbean Lodge which is new, quiet and $2 cheaper per night.More
