There was no staff present at the hostel. The kitchen was a mess and had inadequate utensils and cooking pots. The water smells like sulfur and the water leaks all over the floor in the shower.

It was clear that it was an old building, specially since the pipes smelled badly after taking a shower and using the kitchen.
