4/10 Fair

The lack of Power points and the cramped uncomfortable conditions of the beds made this place a very disappointing experience. I wouldn't recommend for a long term stay.

This was a well located hostel with lots if food and shopping available close. Some staff were very friendly and helpful while others were not. Single rooms were spacious. Property could use a bit of TLC and it would be really good place.

Typical backpacker hostel
It's a decent hostel on the main street. Have a no alcohol policy which is a bit strange. Rooms and bathrooms are kept pretty clean considering the amount of people. A cheaper option than others, very good if you don't plan to spend much time in the hostel. Staff are helpful, can organize tours or give job leads.
