Liked: It was on a big property and there are lots of open spaces, there is a big garden and poorly maintained big pool. This is a really big space it just needs lots of maintenance and better management. Part of the hostel is like a dormitory.

Disliked: Getting in and out of the property was very problematic. You had to wait for someone to open the door but lucky I never waited more than a minute.

Liked: It was cheap and the staff was very helpful.

Disliked: They charged for Internet and the service that they use is awful. It is nearby to a train station that is fairly pleasant, but the hostel itself is in a nondescript part of town and requires extensive security to get in, which does not make one feel safe.
