Affordable hostel, at a Very good location just right next to the beach. Mama, who is working at the hostel, is a superbly friendly person, who treats everyone like her own family. She even promised to cook a meal for us next time! How cool is that!! Definitely will come back again!!

Good central location near to the beach, bars and restaurants. Very clean with a nice communal area for socialising. Helpful staff who help organise transport and trips. Even if they do tell you off a lot! Quite expensive but you get what you pay for.

This hostel is literally a 2min walk from Bangla Road and the beach! great place to stay. The staff are very friendly and welcoming, always cleaning the place so you dont need to worry about that. There is a great communal room for everyone to hang out, great place to talk to other travellers and meet new people!
