It may have been nice to know about the cats roaming around in the communal areas. I have a cat allergy and was unprepared and a bit caught off-guard. Thankfully my allergy isn't too bad that I had to relocate, but it would have been crucial to know that if my allergies were worse than they are!

The hostel is very well located in the centre of Plet, close to everything (nightlife, restaurants, beach...). Rooms and facilities are very clean and well maintained. Their garden is an excellent place to chill out. Cons: Staff seemed a little indifferent and security was a joke! They provide neither room keys nor lockers and they don't even lock the front gate at night. Luckily for them, Plet is a safe place.
