    Comfortable mattress, nicely located. Hostel desk was always staffed and staff provided good recommendations. Breakfast options were really good.

    The dorms were very dark. Would be good to have a light and charging point by each bed. Pillow was terrible. Tour prices are very expensive, I booked tours through Otisa instead, the hostel should really change their provider. I was also unable to drop off laundry at the hostel and get it delivered which seemed unusual, as I was on a tour 7am-9pm I wasn't able to get laundry done. Breakfast was awesome but service was very slow and we were late to the start of our tour, perhaps they could start serving earlier.
