Very very cheap and helpful! Wonderful staff who helped me when I realised I had been scammed and took me to pick up my bags free of charge. Offered very good location, free breakfast and plentiful information and sight seeing. Beds were comfortable and offered wifi and aircon.

Read the reviews before we booked but were pleasantly surprised on arrival. The Good- Location is fantastic. Booked a 4bed dorm and were lucky that no one else was sharing the room. Aircon in our room was great. The Bad - Ensuite bathroom was quite dirty and smelled. There was no breakfast and we heard the lady quite rudely telling...

The only good thing about the hostel was its location in the old quarter within walking distance to lots of attractions. We rented a private room for $13 which was dirty with lots of little ants and a dirty bathroom. The lobby was dark and dank and the carpets throughout are disgusting and smell of cat pee. V run down....

I figured I would write a review for this place due to alot of misinformation that has been surrounding the place While the guesthouse may have the same name as before, it is currently under new management as of May 2015 so many of the negative reviews you may see, either on this website or on hostel world or some...

Aside from the owner harassing us about money and booking a tour (while holding our passports hostage) the room was a disgrace. I've never been so disgusted; rats in the room moving about while we slept, the sink leaked everywhere and didn't work and the room smelled as though it had never been cleaned. My close friend staying with me...
