Room was clean, pool and bar (and welcome drink) were nice. Some of the staff were nice, friendly, and cool and the crowd there was pretty cool when we happened to be there.
Staff (actually the owner I think) convinced us to do the caving tour. The tour was fun BUT the hostel told us we would be in the caves for 3 hours when in fact we were only underground for about 1.5 hours. The trip ended up being ok but we both felt mislead. Might have been an honest mistake but it would be better if the staff fully understood what they were pitching.
When checking in, staff tried to charge us more than the posted rate on hostel world, even after we told them about the HW rate. They would not honor the posted rate until we threated to walk to an internet cafe and book the room online, which would actually yield them less money.
