A nice place for short stay but beware of bed bugs

Friendly staff, strategic location, and easy access to local food
The hostel is well-located next to the Sunday Market (Gaya Street) and many restaurants are found within walking distance whereby you can easy access to local food. The hostel was well-equipped with refrigerator, fan, desk, tv, hair dryer, water heater, lockers and air conditioning. The bathrooms and toilets are separated into male and female, with place for us to hang and dry our clothes. Overall, the hostel cleanliness is very satisfying. Me and my friends was staying in a 6 bed dormitory room for 1 night. It was a short stay for us to catch our flight in the next morning. There are few sockets in our room which convenience for us to charge our electronics device. the breakfast is ok for me as The only big problem I got is with the bed bugs, caused me to lost my sleep for whole night. I was later found out during a talk with a traveler from Korea whereby the same problem happened on him in the other room.
