Bed bugs. Horrible bathrooms. Attitude of some of the staff unfriendly/unwelcoming. Dorm not even a room. Waaay too overpriced for what you get. Good food though!

It was low season and lots of building work going on. But this is no excuse to have the bar staff throwing up in there bed next to you, the toilets to look like a building site and far below acceptable standards, and for large amounts of time staff be no where to be seen (including when we want to call out 1hr late bus, booked through the hostel). The kitchen was poorly Stocked so had to change my order all the time, and the beds were damp. I would recommend 'wish you were here'
Great hostel, pretty noisy until late as there are no walls the dorm room is all open to the outside but beds have bug nets over them, I could wake up and see the ocean which was nice!! Lots of bathrooms out of order when I was here which was frustrating, staff not great, bar staff were better!! Right by the ocean, sun beds, bar, pool table lots happening and lots of backpackers to meet!! I did love it!!
This is a cool hostel right on the beach but it can be very hot as there are only fans in the dorms. It has good area to go in the day on the beach with a beach bar and good communal area but nothing going on in the night at all! Staff were constantly stoned lol but that didn't bother us! Toilets aren't that great and neither are showers but can't expect more from a hostel on the beach than the shack style it is!
Great spot on Otres 2. Good price, chill beach bar, open air beds if you like.
Location for this hostel is amazing. The staff seemed very uninterested in what we wanted. We moved from a dorm to a private room due to hearing that the dogs sleep in the dorms there are no walls thus woken by the sun and occasional rainfall. Such a shame as it has so much potential to be amazing, staff and cleanliness ruin it unless your interested in puff puff passing a joint all day long. Breakfast should be included as makes stay even more expensive. Would not recommend this.
If you're booking a boat to go to Koh Rong with this hostel refuse to take the Romny boat company. Took me and 4 others to the wrong island on the way over and on the way back the boat just never came.
It's not a bad place to stay and it has a quiet and excellent location away from the city, right on the beach. European staff were less than helpful, usually because they were too busy rolling spliffs. The food is great. I booked a tour but got told the next day, 5 minutes before we should have gone, that no-one was interested. The organiser had been smoking and couldn't be bothered organising. Of the 10 toilets, only 2 were working when I stayed, the rest were blocked.
The location is right on the beach and theoretically you should get a good nights sleep despite the lack of walls as it is a quiet area. However there are dogs that run uncontrolled around the hostel including the dorms, particularly at night they get into fights growling and barking which isn't pleasant. The staff are unhelpful and know little about the surrounding area (probably because they are stoned all the time). Their quarters are above the dorm and they are not considerate at night.
If they cleaned the toilets more than once a day our stay would have been much more pleasant! However great stay, great value for money. Just let down by cleaning standards.
Location was good. Would be a nice place to stay if you don't mind hanging out in a cloud of weed smoke at all times. Staff were always high and unhelpful, more than once I had to interrupt the rolling of a joint to get service, much to their annoyance.

Excellent location on Otres beach 2. Can spend the whole day relaxing on the beach or getting to know people at the footprints bar. Cool line area with movies and Wi-Fi if you need some chill out time. I went there twice so definitely recommended.
+++ Quirky building on the beautiful Otres 2 beach with decent food, drinks and own beach area with sun loungers etc. Mosquito nets and small safety deposit boxes in room. Nice communal areas. --- Mostly Western staff, a lot of them were really miserable and not very helpful, although not all of them. Felt like I was disturbing their home. Wifi didn't work very often, may be due to location however. Bathrooms were dirty and running water was brown...no excuse even if using a water tank.
Very dirty and too far away for everything. You will pay a lot in tuk tuk's.
