Sheets were smelly, as if they have not been changed since last guest. Towels were dirty so I did not use them. Overall the room was not as clean. Somebody killed a bug on the ceiling with a shoe and nobody bothered to clean this or the stain of the shoe. Wifi was a joke, so slow that most of the time it would disconnect me. On the bright side, it was not noisy as I expected by reading other reviews. 89% rating? Definitely not my experience.


We'd definitely stay again.

This hostel is perfect if you really dislike interacting with other people. The staff isn't particularly friendly, and at least during my stay there wasn't much of a social scene within the establishment, like other hostels have. There's no air-conditioning (but there are fans) so be warned if you're staying during the summer.


The staff was very friendly and helpful when we needed anything. They had a nice kitchen where you can cook, a bar downstairs and served a great breakfast. We stayed two nights in a private room with a hot shower. There was also a computer if you needed internet. Our only complaint was the noise from the club at night but we got used to it the second night.
