I chose this hostel for the price. I liked that it was outside the touristy area. However there is much improvement needed. The toilet situation is not ideal, being on the top floor, its very annoying when you need to pee in the middle of the night to walk all the way to the basement and back up. sometime i arrive down there and someones using it so i wait or have to walk back up. also a stair light should be kept on for safety, More tourist info should be available. and locks on the doors.
The hostel is very far away from the airport and other public transportation lines. The directions to the hostel need to be updated and provide a warning that 99% of the cab drivers do not know where the hostel is located. It felt more like a long term hotel for many of the guests there versus a hostel for backpackers. The ensuite was not one at all because everyone in the hostel used what was supposed to be the private toilet for the 4-bed room. It should be private when paying more.
