They wanted my passport on arrival (which I refused to hand over) and I felt was totally unnecessary. The dorm room was ok but there were 4 sets of bunk beds and limited floor space for all the bags. I had a top bunk, but the ladder couldn't be used as it was up against the wall at the end of the bunk. getting up and down was awkward to say the least.. Ths showers and toilet facilities were ok. I didn't use the kitchen and didn't really notice how clean it was. i just didn't find the place very friendly although the guy on reception was certainly ok.
