This backpackers is old and dingy; we stayed in the building next to the reception. The pathway leading to the entrance is slippery and mossy; the rail is partially overgrown by scrubs and plants. The kitchen had 2 sets if plates not working, 2 of the pans were disgusting; layers of burned food coagulated on it - totalky unfit for use! The. couches have not been vacuumed in corners of cushions; I think ever as aray of snacks have collected there. 1 shower / toilet for 9 people and wait for it. ; long hair of previous " female" sleeper on my pillow & bottom sheet and many, not just 1 / 2 yuck!!! Upon reading other reviews it seems as if owners are not paying any attention to these comments - BBH should do something to ensure acceptable quality is provided or delist this hostel!
