The room is well kept, clean and value for money. Management quick to respond to queries, e.g. repairing of the broken down fridge. Although there is currently water crisis in town, this facility had adequate water during my stay.

I stay here for two days and is was not good. You have just your room with an dirty bathroom, there is no living room to meet oder travelers. All they have is a small pup without WiFi. I can’t recommend this place. Michael

Excellent service, great location. I think it is super affordable, relative to cost of European student hostels; yet comparable in quality. I would choose the hostel again. Wifi strength in the room could be improved though.
