It's not that this place was awful but I would not recommend it for other backpackers. Its hard to get to. We told the taxi driver "Chaweng place by the post office" he said he knew where but took us to "Chaweng Palace". had to get another taxi and several didn't know where the post office was. The bathroom floor had not been cleaned for a long time. Drain clogged with hair. asked if they could clean it but it never happened. You can do better for cheaper. The urban hostel or the wave.
Run by a lovely man, made us feel very welcome. Cute puppy of the owners too, very sweet,harmless - doesn't go into guests rooms though and very well behaved. 5/10 min walk from the main strip, which was perfect for us as we weren't getting disturbed by the loud music all night.
