Good place to stay, cheap, pretty nice rooms cleaned daily, in the middle of the old quarter. the staff are all freindly and accomodating. Oh and an hour of free beer in the evening in the back room, pretty hard not to meet people there! The only downsides: the beds are rock hard and some of them have bed bugs (but i think most places where people only stay for a night or two have this problem (high turnover of dirty backpackers!)

Free computers, free beer (EVERY NIGHT!!), and great woman at the front desk. 24 hour reception. This place is more than decent, it's pretty well rounded for sure. Top 5 hostels I've been at in Northern SE Asia.


The lock on my safe fell out when I tried to lock it, I told the desk and they wouldn't fix it until the next day, luckily I was traveling with friends. The air con didn't seem to work in the room at night and the free breakfast was terrible, way over cooked bread and eggs and coffee that tasted like rubbing alcohol. The staff in the morning seemed to be fixing many things so they were trying to improve. But I would not return.


Great staff, clean rooms, good wifi, good common room and free beer. Worth staying here
