Very Good
Feb 17, 2024
The staff are lovely and it’s a nice place to relax for a couple of days. It’s not really near anything apart from a supermarket. Make sure you get a room with AC, the fans don’t do anything so it was uncomfortable to sleep at night.

nice and open hostel. Room and in particular beds are not like it was advertised on hostel world though. I slept on a squicky metal bunkbed. be aware, you need to pay for water and while food is good, still relatively expensive. That said, I want to thank Coni for her kindness and laughs during my stay. She is such a wonderful person and deserves a raise!
