Probably I shoudn't have expected more for the little money, but I didn't like my stay at all: the room smelled terribly mouldy (in an unhealthy way...), blankets were very stained, the building's water pumping system so noisy that sleeping without earplugs was impossible, breakfast was unloveling poor. Never again...!
One of the better options in KK! Dorms are clean and staff are very helpful! Recommend
A hostel that is certainly below average. Cleanliness is poor and the hostel appears very run down. Bathrooms are in a poor state of repair. Dorms are very basic, one power point between 6 beds is insufficient. No towels or even bed sheets are provided. Lockers are available but cost 10RM. The hostel is located in what appears to be an industrial area a good 30-40 minute walk from the sea front where most restaurants and bars are. Avoid...Masada Backpackers is infinitely better than this place.
Dormitories are really smelly and not well ventilated. Quite far from the center
Good friendly place everything walkable helpful staff.
Friendly staff happy to help book trips. Laundry service available. No lockers within rooms, however you can hire one for a small few which is within the reception area. Good wifi and pc available if required. Location a good walking distance into the main town centre, wouldn't have been happy to do this by myself. Dorms got stuffy at times as no windows and fan only. Mattress quite thin so didn't sleep very well
