  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Okay for the price

The location was good and staff were very nice/helpful. The morning breakfast was so so, mosquitos were a bit bothersome and the bed in private room was not very comfortable but for the price, you can't complain to much. If you are on a budget, i would recomend it.

The owners and staff make you feel at ease and can help answer any questions. After staying here you'll compare all Hostels to this. SUPER CLEAN and even in dorm space you feel privacy because of the curtains on each bunk. Great breakfast and coffee/tea. AMAZING STAY - THANK YOU!!!! :)
