    X and X are great guys! Always great you with a smile and very helpful. Hostel has a great atmosphere with lots of other travelers. WiFi is a bit slow at times when everyone is at the hostel and the shower loses pressure occasionally but always has plenty of hit water. Beds were nice and comfy and plenty of blankets and towels always available. Location couldn't be better.

    Absolutely loved the vibe of this hostel. This hostel has a very open minded & relaxed atmosphere. I’ve been to over 40 different hostels in 30 different counties and this was by far the cheapest one! The biggest highlight of the entire hostel was the staff though. Said was such an incredible host & really look forward to when our paths will cross again. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! :)

    Said was very friendly. We woke up early for the desert tour and he made sure we had breakfast before we left. Breakfast was free and towels were free to use as well.

    First, it was not a friendly welcome and they demand that you pay in cash, so be ready. Second, the facilities were extremely dirty and there was never toilet paper. Third, they are shady with money. If you buy a water bottle and give them a bigger bill that what it costs, they will tell you that they will give you your change the following day but won't, in hopes you will forget. Fourth, they walk into every room every 30 min just inspecting who knows what, weird. Don't stay here, shady vibes.
