Staff were really friendly, and I was even invited to have dinner with them. As this hostel is located in Dulan, expect to spend alot of time travelling back and forth to the city and tourist attractions. Still, dulan is a nice place and I'd highly recommend this hostel if you don't mind staying in the outskirts.


Pleasant hostel to stay. Very clean and one of the most comfortable hostelbeds ever experienced with personal curtains, fan and reading light! A teddy bear is waiting for you on your bed. Also very friendly staff with enough English to get around. You will get information about the surrounding. The only thing is that also with the description you will not find it. My advice is to go to related easy to find hostel Dulan 102 on the hwy opposite 7 Eleven north of the Sugar Factory and ask there.


Friendly and helpful staff and boss who provide daily travel advice and food/restaurant suggestions. Not easy to find on your ow but Jay the boss provides pick up at 7-eleven (there is only one 7-eleven in Doulan). And very very comfortable nice mattress!!!!. Homely decor.




It's a good hostel with beautiful dorms but with a lot of mould in one of the 2 bath rooms. Dulan is small, so it's no problem that the hostel is not on the main street. Also you can rent bikes for free and you get tea, coffee and apples for free. The beds are very clean and there is a lot of space for your luggage. All in all I can recommend it.
