Had a wonderful stay. Its expensive for a dorm bed (150,000 at peak season) but people stay here for the atmosphere and to make friends - rather than the price. I recommend staying here for a few days to meet people and then stay somewhere else a bit cheaper. The only issue I had was the state of the bathrooms, gets pretty filthy sometimes and the showers for dorm 6 and 7 are rubbish. Other than that, a wonderful place, great atmosphere and people - this place is always fully booked for a reason!
