Awesome! I so much more than what I expected! The price is , the beach close, the owner is involved, and the pool and pool table are great placesto meet people! The dorm is great, accept for the 4 person AC rule which was a drag.

We scheduled a taxi for 3am, but the taxi never showed. The staff told us we didn't reserve a taxi and blamed us for their lack of accountability. By the time we got a taxi we were so late to the airport that we missed our plane and returned to the hostel to stay until our rescheduled flight. Castle House claimed that they were "full" and wouldn't let us stay even though we knew our friends were the only ones still in the room. Horrible experience resulting from a horrible staff.
Thank you so much for taking such good care of us during our stay. We cannot thank you enough. Do not change a thing 😊

A great stay, particularly the friendly bar staff and thepool I will be back!
Ended up just chilling by the pool here, the location is just by the 'strip', wasn't as serene as I thought it would be. Excellent food and service though.
Really liked this place, good location, staff were very helpful and friendly. Bar area and pool area was really nice and the atmosphere on the night was also nice. Tandoori night with live music on Fridays is good. Cheap local buses nearby to get around.
[Review for dorm with 6 Beds] 1. NO AC*: The 6 bed dorm room's AC is *only turned on when the number of guests are more than 4. During my stay we had NO AC. 2. No Ventilation: The 6 Bed dorm room has no ventilation(windows). It only has 2 doors both of which need to be closed in the night. If the AC(point 1) is not running it gets suffocated. And would force you to leave one door open in the night(bad for security). 3. Bad attitude of the manger(though the other staff was good)
Friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was good, and thumbs up for the free water dispencer. Not a place to meet other backpackers as it only has one dorm room, but the guesthouse fits well for families and couples. A nice place to relax.
great place with a great owner and a great staff. everyone was really friendly and helpful.
