If the definition of 'exclusive' is old, dated, poor quality and badly run then this hostel is most definitely 'exclusive'. A friend and I had a 3 person dorm with air conditioning booked, however when we turned up it turned out that all was available was a 4 person dorm with a ceiling fan. Although we arrived after 9.00pm we still had to wait for the room to be 'cleaned'. It is also worth mentioning that the room did not have a T.V. which it is advertised as having on the website. The room on top of not actually being what we booked was unclean, musty and uncomfortably hot, due to no a/c, which made it very difficult to sleep. On our first morning in the hostel, a Sunday, we were woken by the owner and cleaner berfore 9:00am and told to leave the room so they could clean it. This clean, the second in 24 hours, still made no difference! The kitchen and bathroom facilites in this hostel are inadequate, small and dirty. The only positive is its location, a 15 minute walk from the city. This allowed for us to spend maxmium time in the city and minimal amount of time in the hostel. We departed berfore all our paid days were complete it was that bad. The only thing 'exclusive' with this hostel is the name.
