    This hostel was filthy. I understand it's tropical weather and there is not much to do about constant heat and humidity, but please for the love of all things lovely, clean the shower and get the algae clog out of the sink that is attracting every ant mosquito and other small insects in a 500 meter radius. Everything was moldy, the lounge chaises looked like they were sweated upon one too many times and the stoves were locked in a separate room so early risers can not cook breakfast. No.
