Beautiful part of the world, just gorgeous. Beach lovely and clean with snacks all along the way, people coming. To give massages and paint your toenails, selling sweets and lollies and corn in cups. Had a great time with friends, as a backpacker. The staff and management were very friendly and helpful. I would stay here again. I especially loved... More

i felt it was a nice place,my only complaint was the lack of chamber pots in the dorms as it is a bit of a walk to the delux shared toilet for an old fella like me,also it would be very nice if they could put some holy pictures on the walls of the dorms to inspire the young that... More

Wish You Were Here was the perfect place to chill out after a week of temple climbing. We stayed in a super comfy bungalow in the back. We ate breakfast there every morning and had the tea. Both were fantastic and exceeded expectations. The staff was friendly and super helpful. Would definitely go back. On a side note, some earlier... More

I stayed here with two friends and we can't speak highly enough of it! The staff were so great to get to know and were so happy to talk to you and give you advice about anything. We stayed two nights there and then came back for another because we enjoyed it so much. Right opposite the beach and the... More

Stayed here for a week, was only planning on staying a couple of days but just got stuck. The place is super chilled out, staff are really good and the prices are great value. Had my own room upstairs but there are some nice bungalows out the back. The food is excellent and the drinks are really cheap as well.... More

Great relaxed atmosphere in a great location (across the road from the beach) The food is to die for sooooo delicious! A wide range of Western and Asian! Great value for money! Wednesday night...

We stayed in a private room, no bedbugs in there. It got very hot at times. Bathroom was separate. Room was clean and well presented. The bar was great for chilling and lounging around. Food was expensive but the shakshuka was good! We thought it was overpriced for what you got but I think that is just how it is... More

Thank you for staying with us. It's a real shame that you feel our home is overpriced as we try to keep everything as cheap as possible, covering operating costs, rent, etc. whilst still helping the local people as much as possible. We all understand what it is like to be a backpacker, as we are also backpackers and also... More

This hostel is SO cool, so I really hate to say that there were bed bugs a few weeks ago. The staff didn't really know what to do with the problem, they just took the sheets off and put them together with the other laundry. Therefore I'm afraid the bedbugs will stay there until they take drastic actions. As I... More

SE Asia is currently experiencing a massive issue with bed bugs, they are being transported to/from & around each country by travellers from guesthouse to guesthouse, to hotels, to motels, on nightbuses, trains, even planes. so getting the issue under control is a task that we ALL need to take responsibility for. Bed bugs can be very difficult to control... More

Filthy sheets, biting bugs, very loud music till the morning... We got a new room, but there definitely is a major parasites problem! The price for this "room" (it is more like a baraque) without breakfast is far to high!!! Would not send anyone there!

I ensure that all of our sheets, pillow cases, blankets, and towels are cleaned to a high standard before any new backpacker stays in our home. It's a shame that you feel our prices are to high, please refer to the management response made to LisaD and this explains in more detail why our prices are what they are. It... More
