Good 7.0 From 21 reviews

Very good 8.0
professionally run
great location, close to bus or train station, walking distance or take a tuk tuk for 150, no more. staff is great and very helpful. lots of staff, even on every floor. not sure what people complain about the breakfast for?? probably one of the best breakfasts I'd had in any hostel, anywheres. wifi is very good, beds are comfy, AC works well, and towel included. It said locks were available for the locker but I had my own, so I'm not sure if you had to rent it or not. Only had hot water 2 out of 4 times, yet people had hot water the same day, so I guess it was luck of the draw. No windows in the rooms, which I prefer because it stops the traffic noise, and light from coming in. One guy was smoking in the room when I checked in so I'm not sure if this is allowed, or he was sneaking it

Airco was broke, so we moved rooms, but then there the airco also broke down. In addition there was a girl in our room that seemed to live there. It was all a bit weird. But location is good, and the staff is really nice.

Fair 4.0
The room smelt musty. It was good that there was lockers in the room. A weird stain was on the wall next to the air con. Only one female shower. And not super clean. It's fine I you only need to spend one night. The driver collected us from the airport which was a gread and even stopped at the train station for us. The check in was great and we were well greeted.
