I was disappointed that we weren't given a key for our room. We stayed in an 8 person dorm room and they didn't give a key to anybody nor did they provide any lockers to keep valuables safe. You had to go to their other hostel across the road to get a key for your room if it happened to be locked. The shower was dirty when we arrived and I couldn't get any hot water. I suppose this is what you get for $4 a night but I did at least expect a key to my room.
Hostel overbooked us initiallyand then sent us on a wild goose chase looking for their "sister hostel'' which no one knew where it was. After 45 min walking around and finally caving in & hiring a tuktuk, he drove us around in circles looking for it. When we arrived it was in an excellent location just at the end of the night market and many restaurants around in walking distance. No place to store your stuff and the gates locked at 11 and no key is provided.
We stayed in the 8-person dorm. My bed was right in front of the window with no window covering so there was light coming in and there was no privacy. The room had no lock on the door. In addition, guests in another 8-person dorm have to first walk through our room to get to their room. My friend slept on the top bunk and there was mold in the ceiling. Great location behind Joma Bakery. Charming street with many cute guesthouses.
