Friendly staff, helpful; the hostel is in need of some repair; better signage needed, as hostel is hard to find at night.


It was good for a night. They highly advertise their pool, which really isn't anything special. I never saw a restraint or bar there like advertised, but I was the only person in the hostel that night so I understand. The workers were super friendly and helpful though.


Was hard to find in the dark.

I Tvery desapointed because I was there 3 years ago and was very impress by the palce at that time. he place is now durty in need of paint and a great makeover.
