Liked: the staff were very lovely and sweet and helpful.

Disliked: one bathroom joined by two separate dorms, so every time anyone from either dorm went to the loo they had to lock/unlock both doors from the inside which was noisy. the whole hostel but especially the dorm was damp and smelly. felt like a prison. toaster didn't work and it was poy day so our breakfast was bread and a slice of pineapple. small biting ants everywhere. huge amount of mosquitos due to the amount of damp. horrid place.

Liked: The hostel is really clean, the beds are comfortable and there is a computer that you can use for free. Included is a nice breakfast. The lady who runs the hostel is friendly and helpful. Plus, they have a large collection of movies which you can watch in the common room. They also serve cheap food (200 - 250 rupees for fried noodles/rice). We really liked our stay here.
