Had a very enjoyable stay here. Manager Robert runs the hostel with firm hands and is a great story teller ands has lots of information of the city. Room with 4 beds has no windows. Showers with cold water only. Breakfast ok.
ROBERT WHO RUNS THE PLACE IS VERY HELPFUL WITH TELLING YOU WHERE THINGS ARE WHICH ATM,S TO USE TO SAVE MONEY AND IF HIS GUESTHOUSE IS FULL OR CAN NOT ACCOMMODATE YOU FOR SOME REASON, WILL MAKE EXCELLENT RECCOMENDATIONS AS TO WHERE YOU CAN GO AND GET A GOOD DEAL FOR YOUR MONEY. AND THEY BOOK YOU ON EXCELLENT BUSES WHEN YOU BOOK THRU THEM FOR TRANSPORTATION AND ROBERT IS, OVERALL, AN EXCELLENT AND VERY HELPFUL GUY. HE IS A FORMER BACKPACKER HIMSELF AND KNOWS WHAT YOU WILL WANT AND WHERE TO GET
Robert is friendly and helpful. Location next to night market and close to Riverside.
