2/10 Poor

Terrible except for the A/C
Cold shower, no toilet paper in the bathroom. The only good thing was the air conditioner. The location is convenient but it's VERY loud at night until about 2am.

6/10 Good

Nice room with good atmosphere and near the beach
I stayed there for three nights. The shared room is bigger that I expected and clean. There are many plants in the hotel so that I could be relaxed so much. But I am a little bit worried about the security system. The door is always open so we need to keep the valuables with us all the time. Overall, it is a nice hostel for backpackers.

This hostel was very nice and roomy! Limited bathrooms and showers but very clean. Fully loaded kitchen and awesome rooftop terrace. Great happy hour right across the street.
