The hostel is very clean and spacious. My room had lots of windows, and staggered bunk beds so you can comfortably sit up on your bed. Lockers in the room. The kitchen area has tons of seating and outlets for charging your electronics, lots of space to cook your food. Very close to the SkyBus stop.
