The place is far from dowtown so the location would not be excellent but the place itself is quite clean and organize and there's a security guard over there. The place has a curfew though so u should be aware if want to hang out at night and the bed is not comfortable at all. It was a good stay though for the price I paid.

If you don't own a car, the quickest you can get into town by a bicycle (they supplied one for free which I rode into town - on the way the chain snapped and the back tyre popped) or bus is just over an hour. This makes it very difficult to go out into town at night. The rooms smell dusty and damp, and it took me almost 30 minutes to check in. Very old facilities. Dryer broke. However, scenic forest walks were great close by. The hostel did not attract many people under 40 while I was there

I didn't like the location of the hostel. There is nothing close to it, like places to visit or a market to buy food. Me and my friend had to request an Uber every time we wanted to go somewhere. I guess you could take a bus but the bus stop is not also that close to it. The beds were very uncomfortable. For some reason all the guests have to leave the hostel between 11am to 4:30pm, which is also makes the check-in time too late (it has to be after 4:30pm).

Leaving earlier than 8am can be made easier with less hostility from the staff. Guests shouldn't be treated with hostility when they make mistakes. I found this to be very unprofessional and uncomfortable on two occasions for myself and another. I think the facility is great but would like to see the lock out period removed to allow for traveler scheduling flexibility. It's a bit antiquated as there are all ages of travelers having various needs.

The hostel is about a 20 minute bus ride from town and then a 15 minute walk from the bus stop. It's not too bad, but just be prepaired. The hostel itself is nice, though they could use some new beds. Pretty standard fare otherwise.
