Perfect location and a nice atmosphere


Don't stay here if you mind sleeping in a room inside of a boxing ring room; having tissues covered in blood in toilet after a fight, or waking up at 8 with noise of people training in te ring. Water is cut during te night, and its not clean at all. Besides that, it has a great atmosphere during aftermoon party, free buckets for guests and paint; u can meet a lot of people.


Blood on friends bedsheet, when she asked for a new sheet was handed one to change it herself. Dust mites/bugs all over curtains and in corners of ceiling as well as ants in the sink. Tied into to paying for five nights but only stayed for two due to full moon, left as soon as we could.

I consider myself an experienced traveller, but this was by far the worst accomodation I've ever stayed at. The water was green, there was blood on my sheets when I arrived, our room was in a boxing gym, with no security, even during the fight. After the fight, there was blood in the washrooms and things were a huge mess, it wasn't cleaned til the next day. Hands down, most unhygienic, disgusting place to stay.

I'm sorry for coming here and we welcome responsible. And promised to prevent another incident like this. The water we ordered that night, a night we will buy another.Sheets that inform them But not blood stained Full moon reflective color in the last. Cleanliness in the morning, the maid is sick to arrive late. We had a meeting and resolved to improve things as best I can recommend coming here with our satisfaction guarantee and refund you in order to compensate for what you do not like it.


They don't take credit card. We we're put into a room beside the Muay Thai ring (without notice) and the toilet/shower was not clean.


Some of the best nights of my life. The atmosphere was incredible, the staff were hilarious, and the arena next door makes for a great evening. I would definitely recommend this hostel for full moon.
