This hostel advertised: 1. A swimming pool- not in working order during our stay. 2. Free breakfast- not available during our stay. 3. Air conditioning- not working during our stay. At $15 per night, per person, for a shared dorm room, this hostel was not a good value for the money. We checked out after the 1st night, and found a much more comfortable (cleaner, more spacious, more secure, private room, with air conditioning) hostel in the same area for roughly the same amount of money.

Aside from the dust that coats everything due to its poor location, mini hostel was generally gross. There were ants everywhere, dirt everywhere, and most surfaced we're cracked and/or falling apart. I mean, if you're a weird breed of kinky and don't mind an army of ants blossoming from a crack in the wall into your shower when you're in your birthday suit then go for it, but otherwise maybe think again.
