Very cheap stay and such good value for money!!
Rooms were very clean and the beds were very comfortable! Showers were amazing, best I've had in SE Asia, and the staff were extremely helpful!
Solo travellers might find it difficult to meet people here as it was a relatively quiet hostel though but I loved it here!

We stayed in a private room that was very simple but clean and good enough. The shared toilet was very clean. Location is great, very close to many bars, cafes, etc.

Wi-Fi needs improvement though... During the day it would work ok, but at night it was completely useless.. can be a hassle if you need it to book tickets, etc.

I just check out yesterday with 2 nights stay. When we check out early morning to the airpot, we left the handbad has money and passport inside at the lounge where the reception guy stay there, after 10 mins we back to hotel to ask the handbag and the guy said dont see anything, only the 3rd time we back and ask to check the camera ,he refuse and told us all camera not work, after then the handbag found on the corridor(not at the sofa we left) with open everything and out of all money. We late the flights back to the country and have to buy the expensive tickets on next 2 days. So terrible, very terrible!!!!

I stayed 3 days here with my friend to discover the city and street food. This is a really basic back pack hotel but you have everything you need.

The ladies in reception are very friendly and giving all info I asked. Located in a very strategic alley near to city center

This place, as many other reviews have said, has wonderful staff, but disappoints in other areas.

I stayed in a 4 bed dorm which had air-con, however the beds were old wooden bunk beds and were the loudest/squeakiest beds I've ever slept in - just turning my head or touching my leg made the whole structure move and groan.

The wifi was terrible, patchy at best. The toilets were fine, no problems there, although quite small. The breakfast is only served between 7.30-9.30 which I feel is absurd - how many backpackers/Asia holidaymakers get up at that hour? Most guesthouses serve until 11/12.

The common area in Reception is grubby - stained sofas, a microwave with fossilised food stuck inside, dirty floor etc. To add to this, the last day I found my shoes at the bottom of the stairs - which they ask you to leave there - were wet. I only hope it was from a roof leak or something from the storm the previous night...

Stay here as a backup option, otherwise avoid.

Such a shame, as the staff are some of the nicest I've dealt with.

Stayed: May 2017
