This is the perfect accommodation for budget and chilled out travelers. Howard and his family make you feel so welcome you never want to leave. We stayed in a double room that was basic but so comfortable. Bathrooms are shared but always clean. The included breakfast was different every day and was perfect for kickstarting the day. Free tea, coffee... More

Ringo's is the home of all backpackers living in it. I'm extremely surprised by the tremendous sense of ownership that guests have towards this place. When I arrived, two Dutch girls (fellow guests) opened the door for me and ushered me all the way up the rooftop to meet the owner's wife. The next day, a European girl served me... More

I've traveled a lot in SE Asia (around a year total) and this is one of, if not, the best hostel I've stayed in for the following reasons: - very caring and personable owners. Howard and his wife are always around, they will learn your name and treat you like family while you are there. Howard introduced me to other... More

We stayed at Ringo's Foyer at the beginning of August, and it is great. There is vintage stuff lying around everywhere (even an old arcadegame / NeoGeo machine you can play for free). The owner is a positive energy machine and full of great tips. Room are spacious and I guess most have aircon (we had). It is great value,... More

Clean place. Excellent service. I will recommand dorm beds instead of private room coz the quality of bed is much better. There is a unique rooftop which you can get access to for peaceful night view.

Howard, the owner of Ringo's Foyer guesthouse has a unique policy towards cyclists and allows them to stay for free on the rooftop, which I did 😊 Needless to say it's the perfect stop if you're "cycling around the world". Also for other travelers it's a great place not only because of its central but quiet location, it's especially the... More

I stayed here with 4 other members of my family, 2 adults and 2 kids. First off the whole place is not in great shape, there is literally no sort of decor at all and the paint is peeling off the walls which they really had no excuse for as there was staff sitting around and there were weren't many...

I stayed at Ringos a short time but it was enough to get in contact, have a nice Indian food and watch star wars whole night. The rooms are basic but clean and the staff is very nice. Highly Recommended!

Soooo, if you choose this hostel, don't expect airconditioned rooms (there are fans though) and super clean toilets; the rooms are kinda dark, it's pretty warm since there's no AC and the toilets are only OK, make sur to bring your own towel and soap since there is none. BUT, if you're not too fuzzy about that sort of stuff,... More

I hated this place and was very glad that I only spent one night here. Booked an aircon private room. The sheet was so thin that it was almost transparent and it wasnt big enough so it keeps coming out at the sides, the floor was dirty, the room was so dimly lit, the included breakfast was actually just a...
