I stayed for 2 nights in December 2013 in a mixed 6 bed dorm as a female solo traveller.
Rooms are spacious yet there is no locker. Mattresses should be a little thicker. Well functioning A/C in the room. Bathroom is directly in the dorm - clean and o.k. facilities.
Kitchen is a bit too small if it gets crowded which means 4 people wanting to cook... I did not want to go into the pool though it was hot weather but I am quite picky on pool facilities. Other people were happily enjoying the water.
The two young guys running shifts during my stay were extremely friendly and helpful. You may acknowledge that they work alone and do not to have much experience so it's a very young place in each sense.
The place is further off compared to other spots (you walk about 10-15' from bus station) but this made it a quiet and chilled out spot.
Overall I had a good stay because I wanted a calm, clean and comfortable place which I found.
