Liked: Few people good but not all.

Disliked: The property is taken care off. Their common room is good but nothing else. Dormitory is not nice at all, iron beds, very cold room, sheets are dirty looks very old and used. Internet is bad. 1 toilet, they not even give toilet soap to wash hands. Horrible exp. I convinced my wife for first time to stay in hostel and because of them had have earful from her. It was one hell of cold night and both of us shivered the whole night. Btw on second night there was no electricity so no light, no wifi. FYI

Liked: Large rooms, nice outdoor area

Disliked: Staff was less than helpful -- they won't call other hostels to help with bookings or to reserve a seat on the bus -- and the kitchen is very limited
