This hostel was recommended by the lonly planet and we decided to stay here. The staff is very nice and helpful. We wanted to stay in a double with air cond. but all rooms were full. So they gave us a family room for the same price. They also have breakfast included.

At 20RM for a dorm including breakfast this place is just ideal. I liked how everyone had their own walled and curtain area in the dorm, obviously not social but you had the seating area for that. 5 mins from beach down a bit of a dirty road but what do you expect from the backpacker area. Can rent motorbikes... More

We stayed at a double room with A/C for 85 RM per night, fan-room was also available and about 30RM cheaper. The room was clean with a bathroom included. Each room is basically a tiny house with a porch and chairs on it and you can chat with your neighbors. Breakfast consisted of two fried eggs + toast. Best of... More

The rooms are clean and spacious and there is a decent porch area with hammock for every room which is great. Some of the staff are nice but the guy who appeared to be in charge was not so friendly. We had emailed earlier on our day of arrival to request room rates and our reply stated that it was... More

The hostel is really nice for the price, you also get a free breakfast; egg and toast which is a great extra. It's not the cleanist of hostels but for 20 riggets a night you really can't complain. The toilets and showers are ok, cold showers but I'm used to it now. The hostel beds all have walls round them... More

Stayed in the dorm for 20 a night it was simple but nice with walls and curtains separating the bunks to offer some privacy. Can't say enough about the staff though they were so friendly and helpful they really are what makes rainbow great. Even the guys who worked at the attached restaurant (different owners) were very friendly just pay... More
