2/10 Poor

A nightmare stay
I would have given zero or negative points for the overall experience if I could. The photos on the website do not justify the real condition of this hostel. I was misled by the pictures and the reviews from The common area of the whole facility is dirty and dated. I have booked a private room, the room is not maintained properly. You can't close the window in this room to shield the very loud noise from the street since the wooden window frame is distorted. The street flies come into the room free from the top of the window. No towel was provided unless you ask. (The towel might be washed on-premise instead of being sent to the professional cleaning service.) The bed is very uncomfortable and the original plastic wrap is kept on the mattress. The price of the private room is more expensive than other 3 stars hotels in the neighborhood with much better-furnished rooms. The owner refused to move me to a different room or change the original booking from 2 nights to 1 night despite my concerns which I have communicated through two reps. I ended up moving to a different hotel before my planned stay. Please avoid this place by all means.

Excellent and Friendly
This hostel is located right when you get off the bus from the airport. The location is fantastic. It is a quieter hostel. Definitely not a party hostel. I stayed in a private room, that was extra large. Please note that there are 8 flights of stairs to climb to get to the room, so if you are not able to climb stairs, this is not the hotel for you. The staff were very helpful and assisted me plan day trips and tours. I would definitely recommend this hostel for couples, solo travellers looking for a non party place.
