For a hostel, this place was decent, modern, semi-clean and safe. There are just a few things that I do not think travelers should have to overlook no matter where they are staying. The plumbing was awful in our dorm. The shower was clogged from the moment we took our first shower and we had to shower in shin deep water. Not to mention water was pooling behind our toilet, which to me looked like it was due to a bad seal or wax ring, this left the entire bathroom floor soaked during our whole visit. This was reported to the front desk twice, where they told us somebody would be up to have a look. We waited, and waited and waited, both times, and just left. The issues remained the same both evenings we came back after "maintenance would be right up." Obviously, maintenance never came. Also, when inspecting our bunks for bedbugs, we did find translucent baby termites on the bottom bunks under the mattresses crawling around the wood. They of course do not really bother you, just kind of creeps you out. Having coffee and cereal out in their backyard, was worth the troubles. It was beautiful out there and was taken care of very nicely by very pleasant grounds men. The front office staff could put a little more love into their space though. The calendar on the wall was out dated, as well as flyers for events they had up. A beautiful space, just needs the right attention to detail to make it shine a bit more.
