I was mainly disappointed that I was the ONLY person booked into the hostel (didn't get to meet any fellow travelers). I was also dismayed with the one staff member. All the bedrooms were available (except for mine) and he chose to sleep in the common area... which would have been fine in he were up when I wanted to be up and not 3 hours later. It just felt very awkward.

We left 20 minutes after we arrived. There were no other guests around, we had to walk uphill from the road 15 minutes through locals yards and sewage to get there. The amenities would have been similar to staying in a locals hastily built home. The sheets and pillows were very dirty and stained, shower towels were still wet. To top off the random creepiness there was no sign or reception at the place to denote that it was AHLA and the windows in our room were broken out with no mosquito nets!
