This place is good for solo travellers. I met a lot of people during my stay there. The beds are comfortable enough to sleep in. You have to bring your own padlock and locks so u can keep ur things in ome of their lockers.

Location is good! Everything said with that. Terrible owner who had small problems with guests. This was the worst i experienced since half a year of traveling. Hospitality is very important for me when I'm traveling. He was judging about the way backpackers travel (budget travel). There are better en cheaper options in the same street. I feel sorry for...

The owner is very unhelpful and rude. I was enquiring about travel arrangements into the city and he didn't answer any of my questions, it seemed like he was angry for me even asking as he started shouting. Avoid!! There are plenty of cheap rooms in the area. We found other accommodation a few doors up for 300p a night... More

It was my first time to travel with my family, and I was used to being a solo backpacker so I wanted them to experience how I travel alone. I made reservations thru facebook and booked two rooms for 950 each per night. I originally booked for one night but I was able to extend another night until last minute.... More

We stayed in the private double room next to the dorm. I wasn't expecting much but I still wouldn't say that it's value for money. The staff were not very friendly or helpful, I asked a few questions about the local area to which they didn't offer any advice. The room was small and clean with a fan and to... More

At the lodge, you get what you pay for -it is exactly what it advertises to be -a basic, cheap backpackers hostel. The dorms -the dorm consists of a large number of bunk beds under a roof on the first floor. There are however no walls so noise from the outside might be an issue. There are fans placed at... More

Two floors, the bathroom on ground level and the sleeping upstairs. Comes with a nice hammock. The bed is covered by a good mosquito net. Large windows for a lot of... More

We left here with such mixed feelings!! We stayed 3 nights here the day we showed up I could have cried it was so not what I was expecting! We stayed in one on the private bungalows out back but privacy was not something I can say we got! The walls were paper thin and we could hear people walking... More
