This hostel is nothing like what is described on their website. The 3 rooms I sampled were not air-conditioned as described and were certainly not newly redecorated as they claim. The mattresses are old and dirty and the place generally feels unclean and dilapidated. The website also states that bathrooms are clean and modern. They are not modern and offer no privacy at all.
The staff are also inefficient and reception is far too busy and overcrowded. If you want someone clean and nearer to the centre of town stay at the Northern Greenhouse. This has smaller 6 man dorms, each with its own bathroom. The rooms are also cleaned thoroughly and it is much closer to the town centre. All for only a couple of dollars a night more.
