You get what you pay for

The hotel is not in a good area. Do not book if you are a female traveling alone. The rooms were clean and the door to the hotel locked. However, staff are not available at all times during the day so this may be a safety issue. It is perfect for a backpacker who wants to save alot of money. Some hotel practices were a little sketchy such as asking for your passport number. I would suggest paying cash.
The area around the hotel is great for shopping, but there are alot of men from the Middle East and India who will try to bully you into staying at their hotel, coming into their shop, eating at their place, etc. So beware. They can be real jerks and get in your face and follow you for several blocks. Its best to just ignore them.
Anyway, I would recommend this hostel to men traveling through who just need a place to crash that is extremely cheap.
