Things to Note

Please note that we encourage social interaction as much as we can, however we are not a heavy drinking, loud party place as there are plenty of places like that in town just a short bike ride away if you like. We choose our location in this village to offer people a calm, fun and relaxed environment where everyone gets a chance for a good night sleep and start the day with the batteries fully charged!

Latest Review

" I stayed in the cosy garden 4 years ago. Back then it was absolutely recommendable. Unfortunatelly the couple who run this place back then is not there any more. So the whole charme and positive atmosphere is gone. It´´´ s ok but you can get a better Hostel with more atmosphere and helpful stuff somewhere else. We went to Yangshuo Sudder Street Guesthouse 1.6km away from the Cosy Garden and for the same price you get a grat Hostel, great and helpful stuff... "
