Just a cheap place
Looks like River Central used to be a backpacker place but now it's just cheap bunk beds. They still have funny rules written in the dormotories, lists of free city walks but nothing of this exists anymore. The dorm wasn't really clean, same as the kitchen on the rooftop but it's still ok to use it for making breakfast. The staff was quite nice though. The worst thing about the hostel was the noise but probably it's a problem of the city in general. Still it was the noisiest place I've ever stayed at even Pahar Ganj in Delhi was quieter.
