The hostel was closed. Door shut. No one answered for 30 minutes and we even had the shop owner next door call the hostel owner on her cell phone and no answer. We had to find another nearby hostel (Hostel Patua), which was pretty good and which we would recommend. We went back multiple times that week and they still had their doors shut. We e-mailed the day before we arrived and have still received no reply. Don't waste your money.
You may be better suited finding a garbage dump and sleeping next to that on a cobblestone road. We arrived to a shirtless owner/employee who had a butterfly bandage between his eyes who apologized for not having our requested rooms available which we had booked about 6 months in advance. He then placed us in a room in which the stench was so horrible, we immediately had headaches due to the horrible sewage type odor that was prevalent. We left and booked another room elsewhere.

Hi It clearly seemed the person running the hostel was not the usual owner / manager and had no idea on how to run a hostel. The hostel was unclean and most of services that they claimed to have either did not exist (breakfast) or didn't work (internet). The main staff member had no knowledge of our booking. Ben
Great location & we had a reasonable room with good facilities. Not the cleanest of places.
