Worst experience I've had in a long time. Booked a private room, and when we got back at 1am we got told it's another $4 to be able to use the aircon. The rooms are dirty and the service is poor. I'd never come back nor recommend it

I stayed in the dorms which held about 12/14 people in total (One side was closed off for some reason or another) and did not have any problems with it all. Granted, it did get rather loud at night, but given certain circumstances travelling for so long already I'm not exactly fazed by things like that any more. There was,...

Worst place I've been to during my trip through Southeast Asia. The place did not offer any towels, toilet paper or other things. What it did offer was a durian fruit, which someone put under the bed. The cleaning personnel apparently didn't do their job. Very noisy because of the rooftop bar. Definitely not recommending this place.

room and bathroom had very poor standard, but it wasn't so bad - there was no bugs or lizards. Wi-fi only in bar on the rooftop -in the bar ,which was very lovely, with pool table, and climate. Staff ok. Very noisy in the room because of the music from the rooftop (we were on the 1st floor).

Horrible horrible horrible This place is an insult to any backpacker. You can find place...

What ever you do do not stay on the third floor even the second floor I'm sure would be bad. Room 305 has a window facing the stairwell and the bar music plays so loud all night . Stops for Afew hours and then first thing in the morning the vaccine starts and destroys any chance of any kind of...

This hostel was not the best. It did have a cinema next door showing some great movies which passed some time and the food was good. However, the bar staff are rude and the food takes forever to come we waited for over an hour for a baguette!! I also got BED BUGS here too, the rooms were horrible and...

Common area/bar is amazing they play music most nights and the atmosphere is great. The staff however have terrible attitudes and the service is extremely slow. They will straight up forget 30% of your orders. We booked 3 weeks in advance to be told on arrival they don't actually have that kind of room. All in all I'd recommend this...

Stayed with a friend in a double room, was quite cheap, clean and the aircon was amazing. This is a party backpackers so expect it to be loud at night. The upstairs bar is absolutely lovely and such a chill place in the day. Their food menu is pretty massive too. The staff downstairs are generally pretty useless but for...
