Everything worked but the hostel would rate higher if the following were dealt with: 1) The windows need washing. Looks like they have not been cleaned in years. Gives a bad impression 2) Security would have been better if the door safety latch was not broken and if the door handle was not so loose. 3) Facilities would score higher if the walls were repainted to hide water stains and scuff marks. These are small things but count a lot in the eyes of travelers. Otherwise, I enjoyed my stay.
I stayed eleven days at HSH. Accommodations vary according to the room you are assigned. The first room I was assigned had faulty AC and bathroom fan. However, my complaint resulted in a reassignment to a room where everything worked. My room was cleaned and the bed made up with clean sheets and towels each day. Guests are provided with two bottles of water and bar soap each day. Rooms are quiet with ample hot water for showers. Staff were helpful in arranging transport to local sites.
Very disappointing. We had to pay 2$ extra pP/night if we want to use the aircon and this wasn't stated here. After the first night we had to change the room; the new one we got was smelly and the toilet didn't flush. We asked for a different room and got one with double bed and only 1 blanket. We wasted a whole morning with this hassle and when we were complaining (we still had to pay the full price!) they just said "if you don't like it here feel free to go somewhere else".... No words!
