I've stayed at Jolly Boys Backpackers a number of times, but his trip was unsatisfactory. The mattresses are too old, could feel the palette frame underneath and a dip in the middle made it difficult to get comfortable with 2 people in bed. air conditioner remote was lost, hot even though there was a ceiling fan. mosquito nets too small for the bed and had holes. The sink had a slow drain. Staff was helpful, brought a floor fan. but manager was unavailable at check out.

This hostel was so nice! The comforters were amazing, the showers were nice and they have a great laundry area to do your own laundry. The staff is very friendly and willing to give great suggestions on trips and restaurants.


Best hostel I have ever been in.
