Came here due to good trip advisor reviews but was bitterly disappointed. Plus points - the staff were friendly and each dorm bed had a wooden box that could fit both backpack and daypack in. Unfortunately the dorms were really hot (even during the heavy rains), out of four fans in the room, two had tape over the on switches so they could not be turned on. One of the remaining two fans was broken which left only one fan for the room and that only covered the two beds near the door. Most occupants were sleeping in swimwear. The beds felt damp and the towels were wet. My mosquito net was open down one seam, so useless. The main problem was the location of the bathroom. All rooms inc private rooms shared the bathroom block. To get to it from the dorm, you had to go down a set of wooden stairs that were in the open air - they were very slippery in the rain, then you walked down an uneven path. It doesn't sound too bad but at night it was dark and wet, there was very little lighting. The toilets did not have toilet paper but you could buy your own. In the rainy season the layout of the hostel becomes more treacherous than quaint. I left after one night.
