“Best Hostel ever”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Have stayed in hundreds of hostels around the world, but this one is definitely in top 3. Fantastic location just meters from the lake, beautiful surroundings, caring and helpful staff, best hideaway local bar under the hotel (with fantastic bear and happy hour).

Bad (shabby) common areas with wet dogs everywhere! Also, I know this is a small detail but the beds weren´t made nor did they come with fitted sheets. Nor is there sufficient space for everyone to have a locker to keep things safe in the dorms. Finally, there is a bar below the hostel which could be nice but is also incredibly loud at night. Ironically there are signs downstairs asking everyone to be quite after midnight when there is a bar below blaring music.

The kid working the night shift also had several rude friends over who kept running around and occupying the common space and then was asking everyone to go on Trip Advisor and give them a good review! Please don´t go to this hostel! Lots of other good options closer to the center and the same price!

I had a wonderful stay in this hostel and was treated very well by the staff. It's right on the lake, so views from the dorm room were beautiful. The bunk beds had storage available underneath and lockers were available in the hall. Kitchen was large (though did get busy and a few more pots would be helpful ). Staff was super helpful giving tips on sights in the area and even calling around to stores for me about tent rental. English was spoken. Great atmosphere with a fire in the fireplace on a rainy day and owners mellow dogs on site. Living room with couches and dining area were good for meeting fellow travelers. Abundant homemade bread for breakfast. Wifi available. Great value. I'd love to go back again someday!

The location is great! Has a great view of the lake. The staff is very friendly and helpful! The common places are very clean (the rooms not so much). There are two pet dogs, maybe for some people that could be annoying, for us it only added to the relaxed atmosphere of the place. The hostel has a bar, which holds parties a couple of days of the week, but really you don't hear any noise from the rooms.
A very homely hostel!

Rude staff, patronising and condescending signs everywhere, terrible breakfast where things were never refilled, no housekeeping done during the stay, filthy kitchen and communal areas - dogs lying everywhere. I would highly recommend avoiding this hostel. I have the 2010 lonely planet where it was recommended - I doubt it would be recommended in the new one! Very unhelpful staff who are completely uninterested in anything but hanging out with their friends. So very glad to leave patanuk!
