The hostel is located on the beach, with loads of hammocks and palm trees, which is great. But you should not go swimming because of riptides in this area. Every night there is live music until 11 and a great beachparty until 3 p.m. - so if you like your sleep, better go somewhere else, if you like to party, this is a great place!
As a hostel, I found Poc Na to be only average. The staff at the reception is not very friendly, the rooms are not very clean, the breakfast is as cheap as they could do it (Toast, Jam, Watermelon and coffee or tea). The first nights, I stayed in an aircon room - you could only turn the AC on or off - and if you turned it on, the room got freezing cold. The fan room that I stayed in afterwards was much better. I stayed in ensuite rooms, which only had a cold shower, but that was OK due to the hot temperatures.
