Don't expect to much. It is a social and cosy place with all the other backpackers but the hostel is not so great. Airco units are not working and not being repaired. Showers have sustainabillity issues and in general its a dirty place. A reason to go is for the guests and casual staff but if you don't like any of the above mentioned. Then dont pay the 19 dollars an night which its not worth.


The hostel was extremely hot and needed so many more fans in each room because there were no windows. The building was disgusting and falling apart. The shower was also really gross. The price was extremely cheap, but even for that price I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. The staff were very friendly and helpful however!

Absolutely terrible hostel don't stay here! So disgusting only 2 showers for females and 2 toilets which are used all the time by men. So hot no air conditioning the one in our room did not work and we had no fan it was absolutely shocking. People stealing other people's food and belongings. I have been traveling for 2 years and this is the worst hostel I have ever stayed in by far!


Friendly and helpful staff which we appreciated for helping us to keep our luggage as we arrived early in the morning. Strategic place and easy to reach by CAT bus.

The staff were friendly and the location was good. However, the hostel is very dingy and looks nothing like the photos. The outside is covered in grafitti and the windows have been painted over. Some air freshener or incense is badly needed. It's not mentioned in the hostel world listing, but this is an international only hostel. Over all it's ok as a place to sleep but if you want somewhere with a nice atmosphere it's not the place for you
