    Clean room and AC worked well

    I guess we were unlucky because there was no water at all so we didn't book a second night. We took out shower and brush our teeth in the other hotel we booked because we didn't want to stay here. But the staff were nice and they felt bad that their water pump had to be fixed.

    The dorms are small, but clean. The bathrooms need a refurbish and some new doors. Other than that it was a nice hostel. Definitely worth the money and decent location.
