    Very Good

    12 Jul 2018
    The hostel is cute but the dorm was very small, glad we were only two people in there. The beds were way too soft for my taste and there was almost no light. Also, it was very hard to get warm water in the shower (either really hot or cold). It is a bit far from town (20 min walk) and you have to pay 3$ per day for wifi... That being said it does serve the purpose if you just need a cheap place to sleep and it is nice and calm there (unlike Shoestrings). Staff is really friendly!!
