Avoid this place. There are bed bugs crawling all throughout. At least 2 girls woke up covered in bites, notified the front desk, and were given tiger balm. I then observed the wood benches in the main area-bed bugs. There is a hostel a few doors down for the same price. Save yourself the hassle and do not come here.

Despite that the lady who runs the hostel is very attentive, helpful and friendly. There are other hostels in this area but I have chosen... More
