More of a hotel than a hostel. Good kitchen (though small). Excellent breakfast. Good location near bus station and downtown. Supermarket down the street. Good price for a private with ensuite.


it was wonderful time spend at this hostel with my family!


I would like to give this hostel a higher rating as it has potential. The room was spacious and the hostel was clean. The courtyard area is beautiful, could use a heater. Some of the common areas are a little unfinished. The two owners were about both days, although one doesn't speak English she will find a staff who does. 2 big issues, our room smelled damp and our top blanket was damp. As we were only a short time there, we didn't say anything. And they turn off power in breakfast area in day
