Like a prison!!! Unfinished cement walls. No natural light in rooms. Ok the bed was large, clean and comfortable but there is a horrible atmosphere here. It's so dark and unwelcoming. Would never stay again!
Room was kind of like a prison cell and there was a distinct stench of sewage that came from the bathroom at all times. Other than that-good TV and relatively comfy bed. Location was fine and staff were adequately helpful
Legit smells like farts, but alarmingly you get used to it. Staff are friendly and will help you book buses. I got an upgrade to a 6 bed dorm with ensuit, it was nice. Honestly nothing great about it, just a cheap bed to crash in.
We showed up and they had overbooked us, so they moved us to their other hostel MeMatesPlace. After the tuktuk to this new hostel (really a hotel) the staff did not have a computer to check that we had been moved so I had to use my internet to show them the booking. Everything here was also more expensive and the location was terrible. Communication to us was terrible and the staff were unhelpful and incompetent
The place was great but had a few issues. A lot of stairs and no elevator, a bit noisy at night and it was almost impossible to communicate with the staff since non of them spoke English. I would recommend anyway and would stay there again. Good Air con, clean and nice design.
The hostel is stinky.

I was only here for two nights but the place is nice and in a good location. They helped with airport transfers and trips and had quite delicious food. It was very clean. Thanks for the stay you guys!
The quickest and the most professional check in ever! :) The hostel is cool, rooms are a bit gloomy but everyone was nice and all questions we had were answered. Location is great, close to palace, river and main street but not for night walks - it's dark, empty and a bit creepy if you stay out longer.
Paid for private room, but had no hot water the whole time (despite promises that it would be turned on). Good A/C, nice and cold (but only in the room - lobby was very hot). But lobby smells like straight fart.
We loved Dara!!! He was great fun xxx

Very nice beds and clean rooms with lockers big enough for a whole backpack. However, the choice of black walls gives the place a little bit of a gloomy atmosphere and the lobby and parts of the hostel had a weird musty smell. As well, some of the front desk staff did not speak English very well and as a result gave incorrect directions around town. Atmosphere also lacking, a number of people were sleeping in our room by 8pm so we had to whisper and there was no one in the common area.
Rooms don't have windows so it is dungeon like... There was an awful sewage problem when we were there so it wreaked of that. Very nice staff and no real issues aside from that.
Lovely Jubbly was a strange place. Heaps of potential to have great atmosphere and social scene but no one hangs out downstairs at the bar/pool table area. Our room had no natural light which was terrible. Also no personal light so once the main light was turned off at night it was pitch black. Very small room. I think the location was ok, but not a lot to see or do by just walking around close by.
Location great Really clean Helpful staff and lots of assistance in travel and tour arrangements Lacks atmosphere even though there is a communal area Our private room felt like a prison cell because there is no natural light
Comfy beds, clean bathroom, no bed light, very poor wifi in the bedroom The 4bed female form is like a prison cell, beds you can only just squeeze between, no space other than the lockers for your bag (if it's not too big) no window, I opted to move to the 6bed mixed dorm. Breakfast is good, staff on the bar are lovely The hostel has a very strange off putting smell throughout. Personally is too dark, the ceiling need to be painted white to let the light bounce around. Not great Not bad
Nice staff and very helpful, bit of a mix up with our room but very helpfully sorted it out and had a very basic but comfortable enough. Free pool and good happy hour deals.
It's very clean. Very warm though. Also, everything looks really nice. But it's quiet here. Maybe you could do something to attract more people, because the hostel is really nice, only the people are missing. Beds are really comfortable. You offer great food and the bar is really nice.
The receptionist couldn't help much due to communication issues.
