Expect to talk to other travellers - the front sitting room is small, cozy and always full of people, plus Victor sits right there and chimes in to the conversation. The layout is a bit funny - all the bathrooms are at the back on the first floor, and consist of a shower over toilet combo. Not much privacy as the stalls are open to the courtyard. Expect to hear a lot of noise from travellers as the layout is open - earplugs are a must! Overall a nice, quirky place in a perfect location.
Nice hostel, friendly staff. Would stay there again!
For the price can't fault it. You get what you pay for a very hot bed with a fan, good showers and great staff that work there.
Perfect location, really can't do better. Victor who runs it is great and really helpful. Like that there is a code to get in. Big ish lockers, everyone has their own floor fan in the 10 bed dorm. Problem of lack of plugs. Some people may find it annoying to walk downstairs and outside to the back to have a shower and use the toilet, I didn't mind, biggest problem was getting eaten alive by Mosquitos in the process! Good amount of space to hang towels and clothes, really nice communal area.
