This place has an infestation of cockroaches,not just one or two, but hundreds of them, all over - bathroom, kitchen, rooms. In fact, there are so many that altough we had planned to stay for a while, we left after two nights: seeing a cockroach walking on my backpack was too much. Other guests and volunteers at the hostels did not seem to mind too much, in fact they cooked at dinner time and left dirty plates and pots in the kitchen for the cockroaches to feast on it I suppose. Cooking was a challenge, although the website says the kitchen is available. In fact, cockroaches come out of every corner, and pots are left dirty. I had to wash my pot before cooking, and it is nice having to clean after other people's mess. The overall vibe was weird. Rooms are spacious and bathroom bigs, but the hygienic conditions are enough to make me run away.
