Loved every minute of it! Stayed for three nights, very well kept place and helpful staff, everyone is very friendly. Really great vibes. There's air conditioning in the rooms they're nice sized and clean, cold filtered water available 24/7, the kitchen though isn't air conditioned so it gets pretty hot when/if cooking. Very close to walmart which is good if you're grocery shopping for your meals! Overall very highly recommended!!

Has everything you could want in a hostel and lots of people stay here so has a good social vibe. Has a bar and outdoor chillout area where lots of guest hang out. Only problem is you are going to have music all night but nothing either a few drinks or some earplugs wont fix. I got up at 4:45am for a tour and there was music on all be it quiet and probably somewhere in the distance. Only a street down from the main strip and one more for the beach.

I loved the place. Great location, clean, lovely garden, cheap bar and nice music, aircon is perfect, good breakfast, good place to meet people! The only shortcoming is that the "gate" to close the four bed dorm ensuite is not so practical so people tend to leave it open. .

The Yak attracts relaxed travelers open for a chat. You arrive in the hangout space and you can see the possibilities. You want to kick back, maybe talk with interesting people, maybe then go out. However, the spatial design of the Yak's hangout space is so alien to social interaction. The few seats there are like torture racks. The seat arrangements dictate limited conversation circles, little interaction. Put a bit of thought into how people mingle. Please redesign the space for humans Yak!
