- there are no mosquito nets on the windows. My room was full of mosquitos, I was bitten many times and could not sleep.
Overall stay was pretty disappointing. No water and no internet. Understand these things happen but not showering for 3 days isn't helpful to anyone. If the advertised services aren't provided the should provide a discount. Offered free bottled water after almost 3 days. The rooms are extremely hot, it seems that there aren't enough fans for the whole place even though it wasn't full. It was often difficult to get a drink from the bar as there didn't seem to be any staff working.
The main reasons that I felt the facilities were kinda average was beocz there are not lockers or cabinets to lock up your back packs and belongings. I had to carry my passport/cash and valuables on all the trips/excursions as a security measure. Nevertheless overall the hostel is situated in a centralised location to the town centre, cab parking lot, close proximity to souvenir hunters and most of all the staff are extremely friendly and helpful.

I enjoyed the hostel atmosphere. I wish that the Internet was more reliable. It was difficult to get the vouchers. The hostel was very clean and had a great laid back vibe.
