I met very nice people and with them I had a blast. Sadly everything seemed very old and not maintained (for example the mattresses or the bathroom) and therefore it didn‘t give me the feeling of a clean hostel. It is the cheapest hostel in the area but in my opinion for the place you get it‘s still too expensive..

Its a gem in disguise! Lovely, plant adored walkway within the property, a fully set up kitchen with combined seating areas all under the typical clay roof to make it a focal meeting point! And>>>Best Price in town!!

DONT GO. Save yourself & don't go here: unmanned reception, super weird vibes from old guy/owner?, weird emptydodgy atmosphere of hostel, beds unmade when we arrived at 8pm, STINKY unwashed bedsheets (smell of BO & food, so bad), s***-stained towels (or possibly blood..), 25 species of bugs & ants on the walls, cockroaches in the bathroom, no handsoap, shower drain blocked causing dirty water with dead bugs up to your ankles, nothing in that place has been dusted or cleaned in probably 10yrs
