The hostel isn't bad. It IS quiet. Nice roof top where you can half the city, not the 360 advertised. Staff is friendly and smiley. Hard beds, but sleepable. But that's probably due to the fact that not many people seem to stay there. Some rooms are still in construction phase, tho none was going on during my time there. The really big problem with this place is the size of the rooms vs. the oversized AC on the wall. I've stayed in many hostels in Thailand and Vietnam and NEVER have I come upon such non-caring, disrespectful people as those who stay here. In the women's dorm (which is the size of your foot), some woman going thru menopause decided we had to suffer with her with 26 degrees - even at night. All of us were freezing. When she was the last to leave, she'd leave the AC on at that temp. After the 2nd night of her, I decided to check out. When the reception asked me why and I told her, there seemed to be only indifference. I decided instead to move my room as I didn't want to leave w/only 2 more nights to go. I was moved to the top floor. Again, foot size room, but with 4 bunks (no window). Temp was already at 26 degrees when I went in there (nobody was actually in there). Another woman said the first night she'd stayed the temp was at 16 degrees! When I returned in the afternoon, I walked into the empty room at 21 degrees! I checked out. Other problem is the lack of cleaning. Was there 3 days with no cleaning going on. WHen I asked if it would be cleaned that day, I was informed the hostel is cleaned every day. NOT true. The following day, still with no cleaning, I complained again. I was lied to again - cleaning takes place every day, sheets are changed on 3rd day of stayovers. After I informed them of reality, cleaning began to take place. But my sheet was never changed nor offered to be changed. The housekeeper lacks the knowledge of how to clean a sink properly. She is severly depressed and it's obvious this isn't her dream job. The tp outside the toilets is...not practical. For the same price as the "promotion" (200 baht), you can stay at the de Talak, which is what I recommend. Their reg. prices aren't worth it, esp. if you're not a fan of AC or want to avoid getting sick.
