Reviewed 9 January 2017 via mobile

We stayed here for just one night. The bed was comfy, I had a shelf, light and charging point. Privacy curtain is always a bonus and hot shower. 1 Air con unit & fans but still felt warm in 'the pod'. Good location right on beach front above a bar. Cleaners were very noisy at 8am, crashing about in the...

Reviewed 8 January 2017 via mobile

Took a chance at this hostel and was seriously disappointed. We stayed until the 40 person dorms. There's two bathrooms and three showers. Bathrooms where never cleaned. Pee everywhere and the smell was awful. We went to the restaurant to use the bathroom. Staff would come into dorms around 0830 to "clean" and would be extremely loud while people were...

Hi Travelnursekamloops, Thank you for your feedback and taking the time to leave your review. Apologies our dormitory was not up to your standards, as you can see from the many positive reviews we have received cases like yours are practically unheard of. Admittedly, being so close to the beach during one of the busiest times of the year, a...

The resort has a great location, with it's restaurant/bar looking out over the beach. The rooms were very sizeable and with all of the usual amenities. Only 1 of the 3 rooms that I stayed in (due to my own bookings) had a window. In one room the drain was partially blocked, which filled up the bathroom with water. The...

Very clean and the staff were helpful. We stayed in the hostel and the beds were very comfortable. A bit noisy from the bar below but nothing too bad. Close to restaurants and some shops. Perfect for our One night stop over.

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here as backpackers to end our trip in Thailand. We wanted somewhere cheap but comfortable and that's exactly what we got. We had a standard room with a fan. On the hotter days it may have been worth to get aircon but for the price, a fan did us fine! The rooms are clean and...

Hi Amy, Thanks very much for taking the time to leave your review, we really appreciate it and love reading what our clients have to say about our budget beachside hotel.

Stayed for 4 nights and arrived early hours in the morning. We were booked into a standard room but noticed that we'd paid more than anyone else so asked that we be moved to a room with a balcony as seemed unfair to be charged more for less! It was no problem for them the following day and we were...

Dear Gabrielle, Thank you very much for your kind words and although we really appreciate a nice review, there are a few things that lead me to believe you have reviewed the wrong property. First; I can't find any past bookings this month under a similar name to yours, but the booking might have been made by someone else which...

The staff are lovely at reception and the manager engaged with us. The rooms are not so great. I booked a small room with a fan - big mistake from my side. The room did not smell to good. It just felt dingy. So if you stay here rather book a room with aircon and a bit of space. The...

Maybe it was because we were here in the quiet season- but we found the hotel staff average, and the restaurant and bar staff simply poor. The room was average - a big enough size to be comfortable in. You are right across the street to the beach. The pool is okay- definitely needs to be cleaned. The chairs and...
