Rustic and Nice.

The booking was very last minute. It’s a nice place that’s a bit rustic and bohemian but not a people factory like other hostels in the area. The staff are very nice. There’s a kitchen to cook if you wish and a great terrace in the back of the building.

I recommend it

* Location: Easy walk from bus drop off and the center of town and other locations. Address is odd because you need to round the corner a bit to find the entrance. Tons of markets and restaurants everywhere. Health food diagonally across street. You'll need a flashlight or phone to get through the hall after entering. * Interior: Very modern. 24 hour staff. Computers available. Staff helpful. Cleaned every day but with so many people could use more. * Beds: Typical bunk beds with personal light and charger and curtains. Comfy if industrial, Sheets provided. Wifi strong in bed area * Cons: Typical hostel. People might be loud or snore. I had a good stay with caretaker asking people to quiet down and no one snoring in my 6 plex

Great location but awful bathroom

Perfect location although not easy to find as no sign on building, just number. Bed very uncomfortable, sheets rough. Curtains on the beds allow privacy but guests appeared more disrespectful and disruptive when they can’t see you’re there. The bunk rattled so much when another guest was on the bed above me. Jolted awake very time she moved. Female bathroom was awful, right next to kitchen so you have to walk past the whole hostel just to get there. Door was constantly wedged open because of lack of aircon so there was no privacy. No space to change, broken shower doors. No toilet roll for most of my stay. Overall it was very clean and the staff were nice, but zero comfort.
