Staying at a hostel obviously has some perks, which mainly have to do with the price of such stay. Paying so little, you usually overlook a thing or two, it’s not supposed to be perfect. But nothing explains having four floors of rooms and only two showers located on the 2nd floor for everyone to use. There are also two toilets. Come on, seriously? Cleanliness was also somewhat to be desired but, as I said, it’s a hostel, maybe you shouldn’t expect too much. Also stating to have wifi is an overstatement on your part. There is wifi but you cannot connect to any site, not to mention social media, it’s just not working. Overall, price is great but there’s a lot of basics to be improved.

The location is very great, there is several supermarkets and a local wet markets around. No elevator but narrow staircase, strongly not recommended if you have heavy luggage. I stayed in female dorm and the bathroom is horrible, the shower is cold you have to push it a few times until the water become a little bit warm, meantime you will have a wet floor. Wash basin doesnt have a stopper, there is stuff slipping inside EVERYDAY, including soap, teeth brush, bottle caps, etc.
