Charming Hostel
As Hostels go, this place is wonderful social environment to meet people and to go on adventures from. The staff are both knowledgeable and especially helpful, really taking the time to make you feel welcomed. The accommodations are about average for a hostel, but they more than make up for it with their charm and graciousness.

Wouldn't recommend if you like sleep
Great place to stay if you're into partying. I would not recommend staying here if you plan to sleep before midnight and wake up early to do activities. The neighbors on our floor were not considerate of others sleeping. People were talking and laughing past 2AM even on a Monday. The showers are very tiny and cleanliness was alright. We were bitten by bugs almost every night. Honestly not sure if they were bed bugs or mosquitos.
