“Cheap and nasty”
Reviewed December 25, 2008

This hostel was cheap compared to others in the city but otherwise is no great. Our ¨Twin Private Room¨ was so small that you had to climb over one bed to get into the other. There were no windows and it was unbearably hot. It was also vey noisy and the management make no effort to control the actions of other users.
The bathrooms were dirty.
The breakfast on the first day was a joke. Week old bread buns that were rock solid. It improved marginally the next day.

It has the potential to be a really nice hostel but management needs to improve.
