Fan's must be in a proper position facing beds and need to maintain the speed of fans well. Shower rooms need broken articles to be replaced. Daily cleanliness is required.

Dead cockroaches in the bathroom, dirty rooms, bed was not even straight (my feet were 15 cm lower than my head) and was hard (felt like styrofoam).

Really strange atmosphere in this place, a bit like The Shining (except dirtier and less welcoming). Got upgraded from dorm to a private double which was reminiscent of a prison cell. On a more positive note, the location and price are brilliant!

Well I am sure you can improve your services. It doesn't cost much. Just take some interest and initiative.

A hostel might not be beautiful or helpful for travelers. This was even dirty as a junkyard. We found a pile of empty beer bottles in the toilet, under the bed was the hell's door, and i didn't even to lose my usual amount of body hair cause the blankets were fully furnished. I'm not looking for comforts, just dignity.

Save your money and spent 30 Baht more for the Newroad Guesthouse 500m away from the Shadow Inn-Horror. Mark my words!

Very cheap and good but unclean at the same time it's bearable, id stay here again. Great location right next to ferry port and china town. Very hard to find I'd invest in a map!

I'm 86% sure that Thai prisons are cleaner and nicer than this hostel. It's cheap, yes, but the money you save is not worth what you'll experience in the hostel.

The good thing was the price, and maybe the location, near the train station. The bad thing was with no doubt the cleanliness: I could see the cockroach running around the dorm, the shits were not changed and clean at all, the shower was also dirty. There was not enough fans for everybody. The lockers were small. Doesn't deserve the price. There are other places a bit more expensive much cleaner.
