This was a perfect place to stay, and exactly what you want from a guest house. Everything is simple but done well - quirky decor, nice fresh breakfasts, excellent helpful hosts. The wifi and the hot water were also excellent, and there is a comfortable bar area with a self service bar. The whole place is designed really well so it stays cool even when it's hot out - I didn't need the air con once even though it was 33 degrees out. There's also a security guard outside at all times.

This property is being marketed to the wrong target market. It should be aimed at the back-packers as it is below the standards expected by the more conventional traveller/tourist.

We enjoyed sour stay at the Mandala, located in a quieter suburb of the city and quite close to the airport. Staff helpful, Vera was extremely helpful. Breakfasts were simple but adequate, but we found it strange that a B&B doesn't serve breakfasts on a Sunday.


Cool place, and wonderful hosts - very nice and caring! Thank you!!! :)


I could not be there. A lot of mosquitoes and no water. I had to move to another place and lost the money I have paid to book at hostelworld. The owner was kind, making a reservation at another location and returning the money I paid.
