The staff was incredibly nice & helpful! The dorms are a good size with comfortable blankets. There's a nice common area with 2 garden patios too. I recommend having a dinner with the family, they make really good food.

Stayed 3 nights in a twin private with shared bathroom. The room was with a window to the hallway and the beds were kind of squeaky. The bathrooms throughout the hostel were not sufficiently functional although it looked like it was cleaned daily and there was only one western toilet for 3 floors. The common areas however were very nice with a nice patio inside the hostel. Staff was also helpful
