Very Good

Big hostel but kitchen and seating area is quite small and gets very busy. Also lots of ants in the kitchen and get into the food bags. AC in rooms is good and bathrooms are clean

Fun hostel, very easy to meet people. Social hoostel but not a total party vibe, the best of both worlds. A bit out of town but has a convienient shuttle into the city every 30 minutes. Enjoyed my time here.
