    The staff was very friendly and the hostel was clean. You can't beat the price either! But the rooms were all FILLED with mosquitos and were quite stuffy. You can't complain too much at this price, but mosquitos are a no go for me.

    Not great. The photos make this guesthouse look a lot nicer than it is. We stayed in the double room which smelt of damp and mould. There is mould on the walls in the basement rooms (one double, one dorm). The bedroom doors don't lock from the outside so once you're in the building (coded) you can enter any room. We had a cockroach in our light, I asked the staff for some bug spray which he was happy to give but didn't offer assistance. The check in and overall experience was below average.

    THIS HOSTEL DOES NOT EXIST. The hostel shut down and the building was destroyed over a year ago. I got my deposit refunded by hostelworld, however I have left complaints and requests for this posting to be taken down, to no avail. Do not give these scammers your money.
