This was not a good experience for my friend and I. We checked in for one night and when we entered the room it was the size of a very small bathroom except for that there were 10 bunk beds crammed in there. There was air but it was hot and sticky and the room smelled like mold. The towels smelled like a dog had pissed on them (to say the least). The bathrooms were mixed so the privacy is little to none. But, I guess if you are backpacking and you dont mind not having any space or privacy than this is an ok place for you to chill. Basically the pictures on the website seem to be a bit deceiving. The ONLY good thing I can say about this place was that the staff was very kind and the location was amazing. For my friend and I it was not worth it to stay for another evening there no matter how much of a budget we are on.
