Yes, I know there is no aircond. but the room is packed which make the room hotter. There is no space to put our things. Beds, toilets and kitchen are clean but the bed is really not comfortable. Whenever people move the beds make noise which is very annoying. If one really have to save money and choose this hostel then be ready to tolerate with the heatness.

Small hostel without commun areas
We had one man having sex with a male and a female prostutes in one of the beds early in the morning. That night, the same man vomited in the bed. He stayed until the following day, which was the end of his booking. The hostel has 4 or 5 dorms with far too many people. It has a kitchen with only 2 table seats. It's very hot and busy. It has 2 very small toilets and showers and a larger one that is always full. There is no common area, so you have to be on your bed all the time. The plastic mattresses are inflatable and not that comfortable, as you can imagine. Also they are hot. The rooms are also very hot, with only a portable air conditioning device which does not help much. It's noisy and doesn't reach all the beds. The hostel is very busy and noisy. The rooms have only light curtains and see through doors, so there is not privacy and it is difficult to sleep with the light. They don't provide bedding. Only 2 small blankets as the ones provided by airlines when you fly. The blankets don't get washed. The bathrooms are cleaned once a day, but the middle of the rooms are swept only when someone moves out. Some people sleep during the day, and the room can get very smelly. They don't have luggage facilities. The staff are friendly. The hostel is OK for a night or 2.
