The only concern was my mild phobia of heights sleeping on a three bed bunk meters off the ground that squeaked and swayed all night. Other than that, considering we were in the desert, it was a pretty good hostel :)

The beds are quite dirty. They're dusty and everything looked brown. There are two staffs alternatively on shift at the front desk. The receptionist from New Zealand was very helpful while the other was not professional at all. She basically pointed me to my room without introducing any facility.
