Our room wasn't nice. The bathroom door didn't shut. It wasn't clean. The flush didn't work very well. It was fairly cheap though and the food downstairs was good and cheap. The owner was nice and helpful too. My flip flops (and two other girls) got stolen from outside so don't leave your shoes there! The location is good too....

My friends and I booked this hostel for Song Kran - clearly not having looked properly at what we were booking. The rooms were very basic, beds were uncomfortable, there were nowhere near enough lockers for the amount of people staying (and the ones that there were, were in a room downstairs, not in the rooms!), and our rooms had...

We paid for a ‘deluxe’ room but there was nothing deluxe about what we got. There were marks and stains all over the bed sheets and pillows, the mattress was like sleeping on a sack of gravel, there was a hole in the ceiling with ants coming out of it, the windows didn’t lock or even shut properly, the mirror...

So refreshing to have...

A bed overseas. That's pretty much all this place was. Would be a great social place to meet people and socialise if that's what you are looking for. I heard a lot about bed bugs, I was lucky enough not to have any in my bunk but they were pretty much in every other bed. Was noisy till late, but...

This place is gross!!! I had been staying in shared rooms for over a week and all I wanted was to finally have my own room for at least one night so I picked this place to do so! (650 B for a private room with air conditioning- kind of pricey if you ask me). I get there and the...

Been coming here for years as it it exactly what it says on the tin. The rooms are a good price and just as you'd expect from a hostel, clean, comfortable and cheap. They don't have the giant dorm rooms you'd see elsewhere which really adds to the value. The pool is recent but really adds to the charm, really...

Perfectly okay place to stay, but nothing more. Very nice and helpful staff and you get access to a pool down the street. Breakfast not included, and it was quite expensive to stay there. A lot of noise at night, really bad bathrooms (toilet seat not attached to toilet and gross showers).
