The hostel was located right at the end of the road so there is hardly any traffic therefore no traffic noise. Kitchen was decent size with enough stove and cutlery for every guest. The staff was nice and helpful. There is small four square supermarket but twice as expensive due to location. The room is small but you expect that from any hostel. I never stay at other hostel but somehow I feel YHA is stingy with their power point i.e not enough for all the guests in the room. Dont forget to bring earplugs. its a must for traveller.
