Basic but bad”
The staff are delightful , but the Hostels Association needs to invest some serious money on maintenance, upgrading plumbing, taking stained sheets out of circulation, and modernising room door locks. The doors cannot be prevented from slamming, which is a problem when people need to use the communal toilets during the night.

The hostel is clean. Staff are very helpful. However, the place is a bit difficult to find. It just got a tiny sign show u the alley to the hostel. And, be aware of the chickens in the parking lot. They are not afraid of cars and always standing in the middle of the drive way.
