    If you're looking for a hostel full of young travelers, keep looking. When I arrived the place was pretty much dead. My room was a tent in the backyard. Cheap, only $13, but if you've booked this option you're in for one hell of a night. The Mosquitos are nonstop and there are no mosquito nets. There must be a dog slaughter house nearby because dogs were howling all night. The hostel is located in a decent part of town, and they do have wifi, so there's that.
