Liked: Location, reception staff

Disliked: Dirty. Especially the bathrooms which were still dirty when I went in immediately after a cleaner leaving. Also only one light for room - no bedside lights. Only 2 plug sockets for a 12 bed dorm.

Liked: Over all it wasn't a bad location actually feel like it was better located to shop and markets then the other base locations

Disliked: Just to start i rarely review places but i was just very turned off by pretty much all of my experience there. Just to give examples of small things In the kitchen no cutlery or cups are provided only a hand full of cooking utensils also(they did provide for a $5 deposit ) also all the tags to label your food that is explicitly stated they will throw out if its not labeled are down stairs at reception (not a big deal but just another annoying factor. so the small things are small however everything kind of clumps together. i feel over all the lack of maintenance on the facility gives the vibe they don't care so then other hostel guests don't care so the carpet smells of beer and urine in some places toilets are out of order and every door slams even if your trying to be respectful of people sleeping.

Liked: Location, good kitchen.

Disliked: Everything was added to the price. Naturally laundry machines are coin operable. But cutlery, towels, soap, wifi were each ~$5. Especially cutlery and wifi felt a bit weird.Toilets were really unclean at all times.
