We arrived early in the morning and were told the room was not ready and to return later. We can back at 2pm and were checked in with our keys. When we got to the room it was obvious it had yet not been cleaned. After explaining this to reception, they responded with "the girls will get to it soon". I understand that it might not have been ready because of the official check in time was 3pm, but I wish they had not let us go into a dirty space. It was not a good first impression. Once in, the AC unit did not work and there is a standing fan that had been placed on the ceiling. It was not enough to keep the room cool. The bed was comfortable enough, the bathrooms were kept very clean. There is a huge pool and lots of outdoor seating. If the hostel wasn't a ten minute walk from town and had AC, we might have been more inclined to stay there longer than one night as it was a good price.
