Great place to stay. Staff were lovely. The only downside was the showers, there are A LOT of ants.

There is no system of ventilation for the sleeping area and there are no windows that can be opened, therefore even the hallway reeks of mold, not to talk about the rooms. I have never smelled anything like it in my life. The bathrooms are very dirty and I found a cockroach in the shower (not the one facing the balcony but the one inside). The hostel is entirely run by volunteers that are unable to help with anything that is not related to the hostel like booking transportation. Location is nice
