Toilette was full of flys. A proclaimed 8 bed dorm room was made into a 10 person bedroom. No space to move when room full. I except to pay less especially with the beds very noisy and some mattress so old that someone can fall off the bed bcz of the slope.
The room itself was really nice but was tarnished by lots of ants and freely roaming geckos. Location is within easy walking distance of everything you want.
We stayed in the dorm room which was really good, location was pretty good, but you could find a place closer to the river because that's where all the good shops and restaurants are. As usual, you can book your buses/trains/tours through the hostel. There is a small restaurant for breakfast in the morning
No lockers for bags. Staff are good, very friendly and helpful, not all understand English though. It was very quiet here so little atmosphere, maybe that's to do with the season though. We had ants in the bed and a cockroach in bathroom, but to be fair they dealt with it pretty quick but was a disturbing first impression. No issues though, air con and a fan which was good. Wifi patchy on top floor, we logged into next doors wifi instead.
The dorm I've been in is quite dark as the only windows are facing a corridor not going outside and it smelled a bit moldy, but the bathroom was clean and the staff helpful.
