Room was dirty - rubbish under the bed, no sheets on the top bunk, very dirty walls and carpet. Bathroom facilities were clean, but urinals in the womens washrooms. porn playing on internet at night time. whole hostel had an 'institution' feel to it, long dark lino corridorrs. Very noisy at night time, hardly slept a wink. What they DON'T tell you on the website, is that this is STAFF accomodation for workers on the mountain. So dont expect to meet other travellers, or come accross a good friendly travelling vibe hostel, it is far from that. Best thing about this place, was that they gave us a refund after we cancelled our booking after staying only one night!
