We stumbled upon this hostel after a 12 hour bus ride and being dumped off on the main street. The price was cheap for a private room, so we decided to stay for the night. The hostel is very basic, the bathroom/shower were horrible (we waited until we checked in somewhere else to shower/brush our teeth). The lighting is dim... More

Before checking in they would not allow inspection of the rooms. This should have been a bad sign but I booked anyway. The rooms were not great but bearable. The bathrooms were not pleasant at all. Also, the manager was rude and even agressive when answering queries such as "where can I charge my phone?" If you are after a... More

The location is perfect, it's cheap, and the staff were friendly, honest, and helpful. If you want somewhere cheap and you don't mind roughing it a bit, this is the place. I would recommend it for those backpacking.

There is only one place I stay when I'm in Panang. This is the cheapest place bar none in gorge town and then people jump on trip adviser and complain about a lack of luxury. Actually I have stayed in far more basic accommodation than this. Love Lane has TV room, lounge area, free Wifi that actually works, free breakfast... More

We were just here for 1 night (thank god). We, 3 girls, booked a dorm beds but those were full so we got 3-person room for same price. That was nice! We even got money back when the owner overcharged us, he was very friendly to us. That said, it was dirty hostel and really hot. Rooms look like prison... More

After an hour of hostel hunting in the pouring rain, this was the first one we found with free rooms - with good reason. It is scary. There's even one room with mattresses thrown on the floor and no windows! The walls are too thin, its damp, the carpets smell bad, the bedding has no semblance of cleanliness, and the... More

Don't do it. It's seriously not worth the cheap price. Arrived in town late and took what I could get accommodation wise (if id read the other trip advisor reviews I would have definitely stayed well away!) When you check-in they show you a photograph of the room. It's not as clean as the picture depicts. (surprise surprise?!) Mattress has... More

Definitely one of the worst place I have been in the last 6 years travelling around Europe, South America, India, South East Asia and Australia. It is filthy, especially the few toilets available are disgusting and not hygienic at all. The room we were in looks like a prison cell without window and it was so hot! It was impossible... More
