    I have some pretty gnarly bug bites that appeared the day after I stayed there. They are all have appeared in groups in rows which is what bedbug bites appear as. I stayed in the first room on the right. It has three beds. This was my first night in the country so I really don’t see where else these could have been from.

    Vibe: Extremely laid back. Staff and people convaless all day. They'll just talk and hang out. All locals or close to it. Cleanliness: they scrub the place multiple times a day to accommodate so many people. Location: its a great jumping off point for most of the historical places you'll want to see. It's right buy the national police headquarters and presidential palace so the army and police are always around. SUPER SAFE. Do the city tour. It goes as long as you want to ask questions

    Only stayed here one night before having to catch a flight. It's a great price for what you get. No issues. It was pretty quiet though and not much of a community feel, so if you're looking to meet other travellers i'm not sure this is the best place. If you're looking for a bed a spot to chill for a night it's great.

    Very Good

    Pretty good hostel, nice staff, good breakfast in the mornings, the location is perfect for being downtown in the city, but LOCK YOUR STUFF UP!! My beats headphones were stolen along with my portable charger when I went out for dinner, staff all said they didn’t see anything and they couldn’t check the security cameras. Could be a staff member, traveler or outsider, Idk. Two other friends who have stayed there said they’ve had things stolen; wallets, backpacks, shoes ect. Take caution!

    We stayed at this hostel only for a few hours because we had to catch a bus at 4.30 am. After a few hours in the room we found a few bed bugs crawling at the wall. Room number 8. We haven’t had any problems with bed bugs so this is definitely not coming from us. Luckily still don’t have any problems with it. The staff were nice enough to give us our money back. We gave them a picture of the bedbugs so hopefully they will fix the problem.

    Pros - Right place, comfortable bed and in the city center Cons - 1. The breakfast was served only from 8 am and not before, ideal time everywhere is between 6 to 7 am but 8 is too late 2. There was no vegan or vegetarian food offered even after waiting till 8 pm 3. There was hell of talking in the room by fellow visitors when you are asleep, and even staff didn't request the visitors to move out of the room and not to disturb by talking more in the room 4. Rules has to be super laid
