Grubby older not particularly well maintained. Expensive for what we got. The outdoor bar is right beside the rooms so you are hostage to whatever music is playing. The communal area is a cememt pad between buildings with old picnic tables. There is no internet and there is nowhere in town that you can access wifi. There are better hostel/backpackers in town.
