Showers and toilets are small and cramped. Not enough power points to charge your gadgets (only 1 per dorm).


Although the location is very good. The staff is only sitting there, and does not really help you to look for activities, and lacks enthousiasm. In the hostel, there was a guy in the living room 24/7 watching stupid TV movies, and killing the atmosphere for everyone else. The breakfast is white bread (toast) with jelly.

Nice atmosphere, and good communal area. Even extended my stay by 3 nights because I enjoyed it so much

Stayed here a few times before.The most affordable accomodation in town with basic amenities, with an advantage of the perfect location at the cultural heart of KK.
