Didn't exactly exceed expectations. I'm not going to complain too much about something that only cost me 4 dollars a night but there isn't a whole lot about this place to really like. The place has a pretty serious mozzie problem and another annoyance was that my three bed dorm only had one room key.... Pretty silly really. Staff are mostly pretty good but often switch between distant and unresponsive/lazy and too pushy about their own agendas. The main toilet adjoining the common room was blocked for an entire day and despite staff being made aware nothing was done about it. A lot of the taps don't work properly. On the plus side the common areas are ok, especially the rooftop which provides a nice view. If management spent a little money further furnishing these areas it could be really nice. Overall don't regret staying here but probably won't be back
