    Hostel has a nice bar and what looked like pretty good food (we didn't try it). Good location if you're looking to walk around the city. Room was clean and rate was good. Would come back. Tarzan working here is awesome.

    I paid about $50 per night so I would imagine the $141 is for all 3 of you. Try adjusting you settings for 1 person to see what the cost is per person.
