Four-bed dorms, with a small, shared bathroom, as well as private rooms are available. For the low prices you actually get quite a bit as rooms come with air-con, fan, TV, WiFi and breakfast. The private bathrooms are very small, with a shower that taller travellers will struggle to use. The rooms are split between two sections, those in a cleaner main building, and smaller rooms located through the restaurant next door. Stay in the main building as it is better maintained and the restaurant can add an unpleasant aroma, but the smell didn't seem to affect the rooms. The staff are friendly and the tour prices they offer are very competitive.
