The double ensuite room was windowless and basic, but quiet at night and clean. Nice old style building with good communal area. Free wifi and free basic breakfast. The lady who runs it it really friendly and super helpful. I would stay here again.

Although there was only five of us the sixth bed didn't get booked. So this was the perfect situation for us. The bathrooms were kept very clean and the showers were nice and warm....

Stay in 4people mix dorm and luckily get the room with window. Bed was big can sleep and put all staff on the bed. The living room is awesome. But the only problem is noisy because beside was reggae house, music will keep playing until midnight. And the wood floor noisy when people walk by.

The room was clean, the beds comfortable enough, but the bathrooms were a little below average. The redeeming factor of this place was the nice location within the city and how helpful the owner was. He gave us really great tips for our days adventure to the beach and because the mini-bus to Krabi (which was a ride from hell,...

My first stay was good, and I went there again. Overall the hostel was good. But there was mouse in my room during my second stay and we were forced to change room. Luckily there were extra room for us to stay. I would say the hostel looks good, but not sure about what's under the bed.
