To be honest I don't know why this place is nr. 1 on tripadvisor. Stuff couldn't really help with what I wanted. Security is super bad. Sadley there is not really a good hostel atmosphere or exchange between the travellers.

Pretty much you can't complain for the price you're paying. Room was super basic (ok mattress over a concrete bed, AC and that's it), facilities were somewhat clean. The main problem is that there's only 2 sinks, 2 toilets and 2 showers for too many people. There are more showers and toilets inside the building as well. Showers are in a patio, so bathing at early morning can be really challenging since you'll be freezing. Hot water was scarce. But again, for the price, an overall experience.

Good for if you want a place to chill all day, no locks on the dorm doors and pretty out of the way from the city center. Decent beds and good atmosphere

I could have sworn the hostel description mentioned free whiskey happy hour from 5-7pm and a pool table, but I didn't see either.

Unfortunately, this is the worst hostel we stayed at in 9 months of travelling. No locks on the dorm room doors, broken lockers, the rooms are just concrete like prison cells (some of the rooms don't even have a roof!). Just two toilets and two showers available for a hostel that sleeps about 30-40 people. I would advise people to give anywhere else a shot instead of here.

Overall a great hostel if you're looking for a party place - if not, don't go there. Dorms were fine, comfy beds, staff was friendly enough. Breakfast took a little while, but was fine as well. Right next to the famous Sakura bar, but they close at midnight, so no more noise and music after that. Don't book your bus tickets with them, it's a lot cheaper just round the corner on the main road.

Nice hot showers and good breakfast. Staff was very helpful when in the mood for it but sometimes you'd have to wait at the front desk for 10-15 minutes for service. Comfortable surroundings with nice art on the walls. Atmosphere was a bit quiet but relaxed and not totally dead. Dorms were clean and relatively comfortable.
