The hostel was extremely dirty. The kitchen area used for the cafe (which was closed) was disgusting. Dirty dishes, overflowing rubbish, dirty sides. It looked like no one had bothered to clean in days. There were breakfast plates still hanging around on tables in the cafe. The bathroom obviously hadnt been cleaned recently. There was a dead lizard covered in ants by the sink. Matresses and pillows were stained and very old and lumpy. The staff did not seem to care and were unhelpful.


Please clean the restrooms more often and help your guests with the breakfast. Also give more keys for the dorms .
