Bedbugs. Up the yang.
Bedbugs. That’s all I have to say. I checked in at 10:00pm and by 1:00am I took a shower and left to sleep in the car. Guy up front was nice. Sadly, right on the airplane path. Not worth the small savings. So many bedbugs.

You pay for what you get!
This Hostel is very unsanitary, and a health hazard. Toilet was clogged, and a line for the one shower for 20 people...no towels provided by staff so make sure to bring your own. Blankets aren't ever washed, so be weary of using those, along with the filthy pillows.
