Staff unhelpful to the point of totally disinterested mostly Mexican who could n't be bothered communicating in English. Rooms terribly small, 4 people crammed in with poor in room facilities. Not very clean and not ahostel feel more of a run down old hotel. It rates badly this place generall and I can see why. Not agreat experience.


I had three nights there. But only had one hot water shower on the first night. The shower seemed broken for the rest. The similar situation was for the only very old elevator. I took it on the night when I arrived. But it seemed no long working for the rest days -- the elevator just did not move no matter you push any buttons. On the other hand, the bunk beds in the dorm room are narrow than normal college dorm setting.
