It's a hostel. It has hot water; a spartan, but working kitchen; and there are dorm-style and private rooms. All-in-all, it's ok. Nothing to write home about. It's main selling point is that it is close to the bus station. I would not stay here for more than one night and only if I had to. It's not a great value, but if you're a couple and want some privacy then that's nice. The service staff is not very friendly and the entire place is filthy. The cleaning staff seems lazy and there is grime everywhere, however the towels and sheets are for the most part clean and sterile. The beds are basic, but if you're used to bumming it then they'll be a nice repose from sleeping on the ground.
The biggest negative is that it attracts a weird crowd of travelers. No one is there to enjoy the hostel, more than anything it is a layover while headed in another direction, so it doesn't have a social atmosphere.
