    Great location near the train station. I arrived at midnight and was able to check in without issue. There are plenty of bathrooms and the rooms are well kept. The owner also let me keep some medicine in the kitchen fridge.

    The entrance to this hostel looks very scary! But there is a hostel up there! It’s a shame it wasn’t signposted better. We arrived very late at night and our Uber driver wasn’t comfortable leaving us outside the hostel until he knew that it definitely was a hostel... looks like the back of a dodgy apartment building or underground carpark! Otherwise fabulous location for the train station and good beds and breakfast.

    Weirdest hostel experience. The owner was rude at the beginning, feel not welcoming at all, complicated to understand something.. Next morning she was nice and smiling.. The place was a little bit dirty and smelly. Lot of bedbugs and mosquitoes. Impossible to sleep, the owner slept in the room with us, she kept going back and forth in the room, turning off the air conditioning at midnight, going to the kitchen, turning on the lights. I couldn’t recommend this hostel.
