The rooms, bathrooms, and common space were dirty. It was also very difficult to figure out which room was ours, as there was no marking and no staff available to help show us our room. Luckily we didn't spend much time there since there is much better stuff to do in the region, but considering the hotel and restaurant appear to be decently functioning, they should put some deep cleaning into their backpackers accommodation, at least to keep up with what is available in other similarly priced options throughout the country.
