Review is for a room, not the hostel part. This place has everything you expect in hotel room (fridge, tv, microwave, closet) but it does lack some privacy and quiet. The owner warned me about the frogs that sing at night when I made my reservation, but that noise was not a bother at all. They had ear plugs on the dresser in the room which was nice. The noise that bothered me was from the hotel guests, rolling bags on the wood plank floor, doors slamming, loud voices, etc. because the rooms have windows to the lobby side that cannot be closed. And the light from the lobby was on all night illuminating the room. Ask to be away from the lobby. Things here are kept to an adequate level, keep your expectations to the price point and you will be fine. If you want hot water at an off peak time you have to leave the faucet running several minutes. They have coin laundry and a nice complimentary breakfast that included fresh papaya. There is a sheltered kitchen off to the side if you are not eating out. Btw, Pancake house is good for lunch and dinner.
