I have no idea why this hostel is rated so highly. The staff were friendly but it's Thailand - everyone is friendly. The room I stayed at was awful. There were holes in the walls which led to A TON of mosquitos in the room. You could also hear EVERYTHING - good luck if you're a light sleeper. Also, there were not beds in the double room...just mattresses on the floor. The bathroom was mediocore. Thankfully there was hot water. The food/drinks at the restaurant were good. I would recommend spending a little bit more for a much nicer room elsewhere in town!
