I chose this hostel because I arrived late at night and it was close to the bus station. The brochure at the bus station showed a nice looking pace and it promised 5% discount on prices with other services such as breakfast etc.
I was advised the discount did not apply because it was the low season and the price was already reduced (this should be written on the flyer). The dorm was dark and dirty and I was not enitirely sure the sheets were clean. There was a cockroach crawling over another guest's water bottle and the room stank. The whole place stank. The bathrooms weren't much better. The owner was nice enough but something needs to be done about the cleanliness issue. There is no air-con either.
