“Avoid at all costs.”
Reviewed 5 March 2013

My last review was rejected because it lacked enough detail. I hope this is detailed enough. Life is too short to be wasting it in this place!! it has to be seen to be believed. words cant describe the reality of how bad this place is. First off we arrive and are informed we have to pay 50 dollars deposit and 6 dollars a day to get to work which was not mentioned beforehand. i arrived into the room to be greeted by dead cockroaches on the floor. the room was like a prison cell. a triple bunk bed and a filthy little sink in the corner and that was it. my bed was broke which meant i could barely stand when i got out of it due to backpain. the kitchen was a breeding ground for insects and bacteria like not ive ever seen before. the walk in communal fridge had more dead cockroaches in it. even if you managed to be able to cook something with the broken cookers, the shear thought of eating while looking at these conditions is too much. the attitude of the staff is ridiculous. there rule of being out for the bus 5 minutes before it leaves is fair enough but the one morning i went a minute over it i was screamed at like an animal. i was told to" get the [--] out onto the bus or [--] of somewhere else". these really epitomises the whole attitude of the staff. no bit helpful or friendly. i havent been in prison but i can only imagine this it what it feels like. it is well and truly the worst hostel on earth and should be avoided at all costs!!!

Really an awful place to stay the staff are arrogant thieves. They lure you in with promises of work at best you will get 2 days a week which should earn you just enough to pay another weeks rent at which point you will stay another week thinking it will get better, well it wont they are scam artists praying on backpackers. The hostel itself isn't all that great 3 bed bunks in the rooms which feel like sleeping in a coffin (with bedbugs). Just stay well clear of this place guys, go somewhere you know for sure you won't get taken advantage of.
