Nice and young staff of this hostel, if you are in a budget it's the only place you can stay! Rooms are quite small, clean bathroom and kitchen, good wifi close to the reception and, well great value for a couple of nights! Anyway it looks like a party location too, the first night there were people drinking and lots...

The room is big as a chamber in prison. The only reason to sleep here is because it's cheaper than the others! The pots in the kitchen are old and not broken. The toilet has mini doors and you fell ashamed to use the bathroom. The showers are really good, maybe the only positive thing around. The staff is very...

It is definitely more of a party location, and very crowded. The one small kitchen and bathrooms are hardly enough to service all the guests. It was also not very clean, and the kitchen was poorly stocked with cooking supplies. My girlfriend and I paid for a night of camping, so I can't say how the rooms are. However, the...

The manger shouted (not said) we didn't pay for the last night and we need to pay for the night. We...

We stayed in the hostel just one night, because it was not very clean, we've been beaten by bed bugs & we preffered to change the hostel. The kitchen is also not very clean, fortunately we've met some nice travellers and we had a nice evening together.

This is the cheapest and one of the best hostels i've been to. Great location. 2 minutes from the main street, and 5 minutes from the bus station. The owners are nice and friendly. That's a little bit small and dense hostel, but for 60 $ ar that's perfect.

This was a nice hostel. Everything is pretty basic, but you can find all you need. Hot showers, a kitchen (that may be a little better equipped tho'), wifi, staff is friendly... Overall we had a nice stay. The breakfast is not really a breakfast as it's 'liquido', aka only water, coffee, tea and milk. It was pretty clean, but......

I stayed a few days in there. At first, there's no problem. But when I moved to another room and there are bedbugs. They bite me more than hundreds of times. It really painful. But the manager didn't apologize and charge full amount of money. And he said 'there's no bug.' and pretend doesn't speak English. I continue complaint about...
