I ended up staying here for about a week due to some volunteer work I was doing in the area. Not bad for the cheap rates, but it certainly isn't luxurious. The beds are pretty terrible... I was with 2 other friends and they put us in a dorm with 3 beds total- one queen and a bunk bed. So two of my friends had to share a bed which was kind of strange. You can definitely feel the bed boards through the "mattress" and there was a night side table blocking the ladder up to my bed so it was quite an ordeal to get up there. Kitchen is pretty disgusting, not sure it ever gets cleaned. Probably biggest complaint is the little bugs (not sure what they were, but the dogs and cats were completely infested with them as well) that were literally everywhere- in the beds, in my bag, in the kitchen, on the tables. They looked like little mites, and although I don't think they bit, it was still kind of off-putting to have creepy crawlers everywhere. On the positive side, the hostel has a very open, cool layout with plenty of common space. You get what you pay for I guess.
