Please note that while the cost is average, the hostel is an hour drive from the airport (away from the city) and the taxi costs $20 each way. So, by the time you've paid $40 in taxi fees its not such a great deal after all. There are no services outside the hostel and you will be locked inside and meals brought to you as if you were in prison. If you're not looking to get out and see the countryside (for example, if you're in the midst of a long layover) this is a great quiet place to rest.


Family-run place. Pros: free cooked dinner, decor, TV, felt like home, AC (that worked). Cons: 10-year old daughter only person available for any questions, AC didn't work in living room, no channels on TV, guard collected money in the morning, unsure of laundry prices until morning. All in all it's good if you want to a few days to a casual place to relax in comfort and just lounge.
