Only one thing is the cleanliness. Need to be improved, especially for the kitchen.

The beds could be better, but for the price, this hostel is a great find. It’s clean and the staff is friendly. There’s even a geothermal pool on site. The food at the bar is tasty and affordable. I think the place must have been recently renovated because it is so clean. We had a private room with two beds (a double and a twin) with private bath and kitchen (microwave, fridge, sink, kettle). It’s certainly nothing fancy, but a clean comfortable place to stay.

Good hostel experience
Overall it was a good hostel experience. Nice people working there, very accomodating. Great location, very close to the mountain.The dorm room near the entrance is adjacent to a bar so it was a little noisy til around 12:30 am, but that was no big deal.
