Location was great, staff helpful. Problems was that there were only 2 showers and toilets for the whole hostel, which were dirty most of the times. Also the room was ridicuously small, could not even store my backpack somewhere. Power went missing some of the nights...
I had mixed feelings for this hostel, the courtyard atmosphere and setting was very nice but that's about as good as it gets. First room ac broken so moved to another, this room the door wouldn't even shut as it had sunk from its hinges, the cleaning ladies leave rooms unlocked after tey have finished, the 'Friendly, English speaking'staff must of been on holiday the days I visited as even asking for a towl was hard work, and everything seamed to much effort for them, asking for drinks ect
A quiet hostel with lots of character - including the peeling paint! I chose this hostel because it was not Western Backpacker central like the Harmony hostel - most guests were Asian. Friendly staff but a little too casual in fulfilling requests (slow getting a train ticket, for example, even though their fee was much higher than going to a booking office). Overall, I liked this hostel and recommend it to people who prefer to a a more authentic local experience.
simple but very nice rooms! great food. public toilet is soso... but we had a private bathroom. veryhelpful staff. driver for day package to wangs was okay and the price fair.
Fantastic place to stay, had to cut out stay short and was refunded for the cancelled nights.
Great Hostel, great location and great staff. The only thing is that they were supossed to pick me up from the train station but they didn´t. Everything else excellent!!!
