It is a dorm adapted to be a hotel. Clean, cheap and has very good location. I value great and helpful service. There's a lot of travellers from around the world.

Sad face IconDisliked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Not recommended. Not even for free.
This 'hostel' is a students dormitory converted to a hostel during the summer vacation. As such, the conditions and facilities are not ones suitable for hosting. When i arrived the hostel it was a hot day. Since there are no air condition in the room it was barley impossible to sleep. Add to that the dozens of mosquitoes and other insects in the room and your nice vacation turn into a nightmare. The amazingly horrible mattress i was supposed to sleep on not helped as well. Good thing i planned camping and brought a camping mat i slept on. Yes, the price are good, showers and toilet are nice and stuff tries hard (well, apart from the girl whom i came to complain and the only thing she managed to say is: "this is how it is"), but seriously, you don't want to stay in that place.

rate is good, near town centre
The only problem is the address put on hotel.com, not easy to find, especially when the guest carry a have big trolley case. Need to revise the address info and put more sign near the hostel.

A Good, Inexpensive Place to Stay
Hostel DIC is a university dorm, which is converted to a hostel in the summer months when students are away. It is an all-win convenience. The dorms are not fancy, and the clean bathrooms are shared. DIC is not fancy, yet quite functional, and it is considerably cheaper than hotels in the city. The biggest drawback is that it is a little hard to find, and it is maybe 15 minutes walking to the bus/train station and over 10 minutes to the center of the Old City.
