    Unfortunately we did not have a good stay here, we have stayed in many hostels and this has been the worst one yet. Our room was not private - understandable there was a miscommunication - but we paid for a room that locks. The host (a girl) was very rude and unwelcoming. The room was not clean; I think I left with flea bites. The bathroom was unclean and there was no toliet paper or soap. Also no towels, if this is custom their should be a warning. This was not a great experience.
