    The dorms are better than the rooms, just insane. We do both and the room was so humid dirty and not confortable and UNDERGROUND. But the dorm was more clean, the bathroom was completely new etc etc So you pay less and you have better. That didn't work like that normally...

    Private room had its own washroom.

    The pool is ice cold, there was no hot water in the shower or sink for any of my three days, and the bar even ran out of ice on the evening I decided to drink there so could not make proper cocktails. And the area is VERY loud especially on the ground floor, with what sounded like a train track nearby that was seemingly non-stop.

    I liked the common/hangout areas by the pool, the restaurant and bar, and the guy offering tour information anywhere in the country, the proximity to the bus stations.

    The dorm I stayed in was right next to the pool, so throughout the night everyone was still drinking and partying outside and could hear everything. Other than that , I would recommend it.
