    The hostel wasn't overly clean, but not disgustingly dirty, if that makes sense. The a/c in the room is coin operated. The bathrooms could use a little shelf for convenience, but no big deal. The pool is pretty nice. Kitchen facilities are pretty nice and the dorm had a mini fridge. Location is pretty far but they offer plenty of shuttles into town. The staff is extremely friendly! They definitely made the stay worth it.
