Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Staff & service
After flying all night, I arrived early at the property. They refused to check me in. I offered to pay for the extra night. They also refused. The Indian guy at the front desk said that they didn't have any beds ready and that I'd have to wait until 2 PM. Later I found out that the room I was in, had three open and clean beds from the day before. I complained to the manager, but not sure if he did anything about his front repectionists and their lies...I won't be staying there in the future, that's for damn sure.

Disorganized Space and Operations
Some travelers stay here longer term and have their things in the kitchens and rooms. The hostel doesn't ensure the kitchens and rooms remain organized, nor ensure that beds are marked for new travelers. There was a conflict in my room because staff gave someone new a person's bed who had been there.

The hostel is ok overall, however the dorm room was very hot during the day since it faces the sun in the afternoon and has very little ventilation.
