In desperate need of cleaning
I booked 2 nights in a private room and ended up with 4 bunk beds in a small room for $89/ night. The room was filthy, with cobwebs near the ceilings, and the fan and air con were covered in dust, so much that my nose ran the entire trip. There were also tons of ants on my bed and in the shower area. Both nights I stayed, people were singly loudly in the hallways between 2-4 am, and one night a girl was trying to open the back door(which didn't close all the way) mistakenly at 5 am. I would never stay here again...terrible value for the money. Only plus is location to the port.

Not satisfied
Location, rooms, night trivia
The hostel is well located, 5 minutes out of the main street, but it's not very clean, the staff is not very helpful and there is really nothing special about it.
