The beds were reasonably clean but the dorm lay outs were terrible. I'm tall so I often felt my feet kicking through the end of the bed at someone's head and when I discussed this with the other guests I found I wasn't the only one and it wasn't only tall people that realized this. The free breakfast was ok,... More

The bed was okay, not the noisy dorm I expected. It didn't seem like they change the sheets after a guest checks out, though. It's a good place, however, to meet people, as with any other dorm/hostel. Also, the receptionist was a bit creepy. He wanted to take a picture with me so he can show it to his friend,... More

The staff were very unhelpful, with a throwaway attitude, and the beds dirty. The beds were also rock hard giving all my dorm back ache. Would not recommend this hostel at all. The staff don't change the bed sheets between travellers either.

The bed sheets were not the cleanest. Decent customer service, free breakfast that wasn't bad. Bathrooms were clean. Good locations, many bars and restaurants close and the night market. Decent price, the bike rentals are very cheap.

We stayed here 2 nights. The only reason is because it was the cheapest place we could find in this very overpriced town. After checking in, we discovered they were fumigating a dorm room (maybe for bed bugs as there were a lot of reviews about those). We went out and on returning we found two of the staff that... More
