THE WORST INFESTATION OF BEDBUGS EVER SEEN AND NO INTENTION OF SOLVING PROBLEMS PROMPTLY ON THE PART OF THE NIGHT STAFF. GOT MY MONEY BACK, THOUGH, AFTER DECIDING NOT TO STAY. THAT WAS VERY DECENT OF THE OWNER. MUST BE IMPROVED A LOT TO BECOME A REASONABLY OK PLACE. NEEDS A LOT OF WORK!

Management was incredibly rude. Blasting music from 1230 at night to 2 or 3 AM with his friends. Smoking cigarettes as the smoke wafts into guest rooms, screaming and whistling along to the music drunkenly while guests attempt to sleep. Owner actively encourages guests to be rowdy and obnoxious when everyone is sleeping. Do not stay here, it is not worth the money.
The staff here was very nice and friendly. The kitchen was very well stocked and has a commercial refrigerator so there is room for everyone to keep food in it. This hostel really has a computer to access the internet. However, they do not have a tv with cable for everyday use. This really is a party hostel and people are very friendly here. I did sustain insect bites my last night there though.
Great place if you're looking for a party hostel but it was extremely noisey late at night. The curfew should be enforced. The bathrooms were also disgusting with women leaving their panties there for two days. They should at last be thrown out by the cleaner. Not nice for others to see!
Not the most fresh hostel. The pool is not worth to be called a pool. The rooms were really warm even though the fans were on. Nice staff though.
