Stayed here for 5 nights in Jan 08 and paid $33 for a 5 bed dorm. The room was too small for 5 bed and was therefore, very hot and cramped. The fan was a waste of time as it didn't even move the hot air around let alone cool the room down. The showers/bathrooms need a good clean and any showers not working need to be repaired ASAP as without all showers working you are waiting in line. I found the reception staff very good and helpful. The kitchen area is a good size and has the required cutlery. The layout of the hostel is, I think, good but I know some girls will not like walking if front of people to the showers etc. Subject to the heat in the room, you can get a good nights sleep as the staff make sure the communal areas are quiet after 11pm. Free stuff including tea/coffee & body boards are available from reception.
