    Great hostel, great staff. They don't do any organized activities but I met wonderful people at the hostel with whom we went out on our own. This hostel would be the best if they did organized activities as some others do. Also, I had to ask for them to turn on the air conditioning in the evening a few times as it was turned off when I got home after a night out.
