A great hostel with a friendly atmosphere. It is also very good value for money. My friend and I stayed in the hostel for four nights and we had a great time hanging out in Patong. It is also worth doing some of the excursions that they can arrange for you, the Amazing Canoes trip to James Bond Island was... More

This is probably the friendly staffed hostel i've stayed at. The staff makes you feel at home, they really reach out to help you if you need any activities planned so don't hesitate to ask! Usually they have better rates for activities so definitely check with the front desk staff before booking through another company. There is always someone manning... More

Staying at dorm. Had to leave earlier then i paid for. The boss did not want to give my money back, even before check-out time. I recommend to pay here just day by day then, the boss probably prefer that. The staff is friendly though.

In the four weeks I spend in Thailand en Laos, this is handsdown the best hostel I've stayed in( extended my 2 nights to 5). The rooms are good, beds comfy, electricity and lights work, showers warm, every bed has a reading light, and the beds get cleaned every day. The best thing though is the staff. They've treated me...
