    worst hostel ever. i wasnt expecting to much since I already readed previous reviews. Location and price are good. staffs werent friendly. they didnt introduce the hostel, they only gave me wifi pass and try to sell tours. everyone can enter in this hostel, it is not safe. the doors cannot be locked lockers are fragile and homemade and stay out of your room. very few and dust bathrooms. one plug for six peoples at the room. my bed didnt lock clean at all.
