The staff were so friendly and accommodating from the day of my inquiry until the day we left the city. Reasonable rates. Clean and comfortable rooms. Good wifi connection. They change the towels everyday and other bathroom essentials. Excellent customer service. They are very helpful when we need information. Great stay

My two friends and I stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of our trip around Southeast Asia. We found it to be a great place to start with friendly staff, always willing to help and give us advice. We booked a triple room which was perfect for the 3 of us, as it was affordable and comfortable with... More

We stayed in the first floor private room with bathroom. The room was really clean and looked quite new, with cable tv, a fridge and wifi in the room. Looked more like a hotel than a hostel. The staff were very friendly giving us a drink as soon as we arrived from the airport. Breakfast was small but was made... More

We stayed in both the dorm room and the private room and they were both clean, quiet and comfortable. The staff were lovely and very keen to help. Great wifi with computers downstairs too. Good breakfast. As the other reviews say, well located but tucked away so not too much noise.

Helped us with flights, lost baggage and tours. The free breakfast is very small. Air con in room didn't work. Other than that the room was fine, and great for the price. It tucked well into the back backers district, and is down an alley way, on the end of which is a market.

The rooms were very clean and the personal was so friendly. The girl who's in the reception will help you with everything. They also have WiFi and aircon. The hotel is in the city but in a quietly street. You can get everything you need in this district. They're a lot of tourist information center and at night you can... More
