    Excellent location, right in the shopping district of town. 5 minute walk to the old town and the beach. Friendly staff. Great kitchen where people cook and hang out. Rooms were very basic but comfortable. Locker and key provided which was handy. I would go again.

    Not a bad place to spend a night but any hostel without a common area isn’t really a hostel.

    My friend got offered an unsifficient mattress (a hay one?). Normally not big of a deal, but certainly a deal with these prices. Also, ventilator downstairs necessary because of humidity of air.

    The hostel is ok if you want to stay 1 night, but i wouldn't recommend it. When I entered the room, the smell was really really bad. There is no ventilation and only a very small window, what means no fresh air at all. But besides that the mattress and pillow were stinking so bad of old sweat I could hardly sleep. The good thing is the staff was really helpful and nice and the location is great, near the bus/train station.

    Poor by inner city hostel standards relative to price. No ceiling fan or AC in rooms so very hot in the evenings. Limited plug sockets for charging and noisy windows onto a busy Main Street. The card machine was allegedly not working, but there is a sign for 20% discount if paying by cash - so I suspect this was a tax dodge. Kitchen is decent but no common room.
