Falling Apart
ROOM FALLING APART! Ceiling was leaking! They didn't offer to change rooms! It was NOT raining and yellow water was coming from the entrance and bathroom. The ceiling was even falling in the bathroom! There was a HUGE hole!

The AC didn't work the 1st night and it was HOT AS HECK and there were LEAKS IN THE CEILING!!! We had water coming in the hall way and the bathroom AND it wasn't raining! It was nasty yellow water all over the door entry and the bathroom. The bathroom ceiling even got a hole after the 2nd day! Other than that the place was nice. They should have moved me into a different room and fixed the issues in that room.

Good hostel - great location and fair prices
Great little hostel. Well-located between a ton of great sites, it had a friendly staff, clean rooms, and a decent breakfast. It was easy to take walking tours from the hostel (which we did) and there were people in the hostel from all over the world, which added a bit of flair to the place.
