If you are looking for a cheap quiet hostel where you can have a good night's rest, you have come to the right place. I have stayed here on several occations in a dorm as well as in a single room. The rooms are nice and clean and you get free tea/coffee and cereal for breakfast. The location is good as well: the shopping mall (ans Supermarket) is just across the road and you walk maybe 10 min too the city centre. Free wifi is included. Peter, the manager, is very helpful if you want to book tours around town.
The only drawback if you are a light sleeper are the thin walls and some creaky floor boards, but the quiet time starting at 10pm is very helpful.
