- “ Very simple. The dorms are futon-like mattresses laid on the floor, but they're comfortable. Each bed has it's own fan and mosquito net which keeps you cool at night - better than a/c. Cold, but clean shower. The only social area is a few tables on the sidewalk with a fridge of cheap beer for sale, but it always had a great atmosphere and was easy to meet people.

- “ I didn't feel very welcomed or was met with a blank stare when I asked questions about the area. The service was very standard and the room was below my expectations. The location is a bit of a walk from the busy central area of the river so I felt a bit vulnerable walking on my own at night to the hostel. Overall, the hostel was a disappointment. ”
