    Nice grounds and good that they offer free airport pick-up and a drop-off to the falls. Room, bathroom and kitchen were covered in mosquitos and the mosquito net on the bed didn’t stop them getting in. The top bunk is pretty dangerous, be careful not to slip or catch your foot in the mosquito net if climbing down. No lockers in the room and other guests left used plates and cups over the floor.

    You get what you pay. It’s an affordable hostal that is convenient and well located. Don’t expect 5-star service or amenities.
