Liked: The owner is friendly and nice.

Disliked: The building was really run down. During the rain a portion of the roof collapsed. The breakfast was usually diminished by one or two guests leaving nothing for anyone else. Other guests were long term residents, and treated backpackers as if we had broken into thier home. Beds were horrible, matresses old and thin. I think in prison they have more comfortable beds. Curfew between 11pm and 8am. The owner is friendly but he has alot of work to do before this place could be considered decent.

Liked: -

Disliked: Hostel Plaza isn't the dirtiest place I've ever stayed, but it was grungy enough that I didn't stay the night, instead opting to eat the night's cost and book another hostel elsewhere. The sheets were threadbare and pilly (and there was only a sheet, no blankets), the springs stuck out of the mattress into my back, the bathrooms were only moderately clean, and the upstairs terrace looked unkempt and unused. There was not a single functioning power outlet in the room. Definitely would have been constantly uncomfortable if I had stayed.

Liked: It`s cheap as chips and there`s free internet and a lovely balcony.

Disliked: It has potential, but it`s not maintained at all... most things are broken or crumbling away. With a little TLC it could be very nice. One night the staff played loud music until about 4am in the bar (next to our room) when there was NO ONE even there apart from him and his mate. Pretty selfish. The hostel wasn`t secure... it has a "secure" door at the front, but if you give it a little push you can open it with ease. Our room didn`t lock very well when we first arrived, so they fiddled with it when we went out and left the door wide open... thanks. The whole hostel is dirty... especially the bathrooms which stank and they never bothered to change the bins/clean. There was no running water when we arrived.
