I have definitely found nicer hostels in my travels than this one. I booked without doing much research and only about a week out from my arrival. The location was the best part about this hostel. It is close to all of the action, restaurants, bars and beach. It is generally clean but quite dated. The showers do not have... More

This is actually the first review I have ever written but I decided it my responsibility to my fellow travelers to know what could happen in this place. The owner/receptionist old lady smiles when first meeting you but turns out to be wrotten/greedy on the inside. She was really kind and supporting generally but when I asked for a ride... More

First time backpacker and this place impressed me. Friendly staff that was able to book some tours for me and give me great advise of further travel plans. Cool atmosphere and a fun vibe. Great place for a solo traveler. Also 2 minute walk to the beach and crazy party street.

We were with some who were drunk a lot of the time and mama took care of everybody and made sure they wouldn't lose their valuables. The staff is cleaning all the time so its really clean in de...

I stayed in this hostel for 5 nights and it was awesome! First of all the location; right around the corner from the bars and beach (if you want to go for some peace and quiet, don't go to this city ;) ). Second, the rooms were clean and big enough and the beds were comfy. But the most important... More

The lady, Mama, is extremely rude. The rest of the staff is fine, but speaks very little English. They charge for every little thing, including a key deposit. All the rules are extremely annoying. The location of the hostel is very good if you like to party on Bangla road, and the lady in the morning is nice. I didn't... More
