          Saying that it was 'overpriced' would be an euphemism. The rooms were not properly cleaned the moment we entered the room. Furthermore, THERE WERE LOUD NOISES ALL NIGHT, which meant that none of us could sleep properly. The owner also raised the price for the...More

          Good clean hostel in good location. Double room was $30 with breakfast at extra cost. Lack of engagement from the staff on check in and check out. Good rooftop area with 'honesty bar/fridge'. Overall would not recommend as there are better value hostels around.
