Best hostel experience ever and we are a couple in our fifties who have backpacked in a lot of countries! This hostel knows what travellers needs are and they have created a comfortable, friendly place. Book ahead it gets full quickly. Location is good and all the services are there and yes a hostel with a pool it's a big plus!

This hostel is more than the worth of what you pay. Accommodation, facilities, food, and drinks all in one place.. near shopping and resto walking distance (you can even walk home drunk from pub street!) the people here are sooooooo friendly and accommodating, very hospitable. it feels like people here have known each other for so long even you just met them seconds ago. A very happy place to be. makes it hard to leave.

Room Tip: The dorm is always worth it. and if your travelling 6 or more. the mixed dorm is always the best dea...

This place is magical! Clean, uber-affordable, good food, loud when you want it, quiet when you need it, and the drink specials...oh the drink specials!

Though what truly makes this place special are the people who run it and the manner in which they do so. When you walk in it is apparent that the staff is happy to be there and eager to assist you with making your trip as memorable as possible. Some struggled with English, but there was no miscommunication that couldn't be remedied with a smile and grabbing someone who could better understand.

Gus and Driess are always present. Interacting, smiling, encouraging, and the champions of creating this extremely positive vibe.

5 days was much to short. Cannot wait to go back!

The place is so popular that the staff is a bit overwhelmed. When u check in, you might have to wait a while as I did. But it's no big deal. It's definitely the perfect place to meet people and have a few drinks before hitting pub st. book in advance for all your days you want to stay. I had to switch hotels since I only booked one night! :(

This is probably the best hostel I've ever stayed in. Run in a socially responsible manner, the hostel has a warm and friendly atmosphere with regular events that encourage everyone to make new friends. The food is really good (beef lok lak is awesome!) and happy hour at the bar is ridiculously cheap!

Oh, and the pool is just the icing on an already bloody tasty cake. Great stuff! I will be back as soon as I can...
