    Lady at the reception charged me 30% more than the price on stated and when I realized she said I had to pay fees to For that price I could have stayed in a nice place with breakfast included. It was very noisy till 2am, as rooms are facing a corridor in which is a tv and the main long table for the guests. Bedshits were missing, and from the cutlery - there is one knife and one spoon in the kitchen. I think you can easily find a nicer place to stay in BsAs.

    Besides all bad feeling about fresh air and toilet...the reception also gave me some trouble...all other hostels charge money following the emails...after booking the hotel you will always receive a email showing how much you need to pay when you arrive...but this hostel added up 2.5USD on the price in the email.....I showed them the seems that they understand but when using credit card they still charge 2.5USD more than the email’s not a big money but it is really not worthy ...just check its bad air and kitchen (almost nothing ).....and toilet...

    I stayed here for two days ..rooms are ok...but always feeling no fresh air ..bathroom and toilet inside are very very small ......well ..maybe most of these kinds hostels are similar...but no fresh air is a big problem...especially when many people are around..all I can smell when climbing up stairs is people’s feet...felling very very bad...also there’re almost nothing in the kitchen ..the only fried pan has no handle...just imagine how difficult it is when you cook something ...anyway..Really disappointed about kitchen..fresh air and bathroom...

    The hostel is in a great location. You can easily walk to many cool tourist sights.

    The hostel is fine, but it is near several abandoned buildings. The problem with this is that water collects and creates a mosquito problem.
