Except for the good location to the beach.There is no reason to recommend. No lobby. One broken sofa and one damaged stone table in the alley.No toilet seat in every toilet.


it was okey


There no common areas. The dorms were cheap and clean. Fine for a night or two. In the middle of everything, but no common areas to chat with other travelers.

Great location, clean and very friendly staff. My biggest issue was zero toilet paper, soap or even toilet seats. Really nice that there's inexpensive laundry service on site. Would really benefit from some kind of common area/social area though


Standard hostel stayed in the 12 bed room, i arrived and my bed wasnt clean so had to wait for it to be changed. locker was provided. The showers were freezing and was always a cue for them.

Very small and dirty place, they didn't change the sheets and the toilet is dirty and doesn't have toilet paper. The dorm is only a very small room but with 12 beds in it. It's more a hostel for a layover than for being there a long time.


Its a good place if you are looking for cheap accommodation. The bathrooms are not so nice, actually not nice at all, but, as i said, if you want cheap accommodation in ao nang, this is your place!


Good internet and good location only 10 minutes from the main beach.


The shower facilities were poor most toilets broken and the sinks didn't work. There are holes in the wall between the shower block and dorm rooms taped up with masking tape and bedding that looked like it hadn't been changed between guests. I'm sure if you get a private room things may be different but dorm needs work!! And wifi signal was terrible!


Good staff, nice and helpfull! Very good location, near the beach, shops and restaurants. Stayed in the dorm and private room, both good especially the private room with bathroom and good price. I reccomend and will stay again when I go back.


Overpriced compared to hostels around Thailand. The private fan rooms especially. Bathrooms could be much nicer with some cheap, simple fixes such as putting toilet seats on, mending broken shower controls. Could offer free toilet paper and shower gel to warrant the price tag. Reception staff nice & location excellent but not an outstanding hostel.


Was a nice place to meet people and start things. Excellent travel agency in front of it. Enjoyed my stay and met nice people. Water quality in facility was not so good. Maybe fixed now. Great for the money.


I think this hostel has 3 sites so I can only comment on the one I stayed. Pretty basic and not really much space for meeting people as no common room. But as a place to rest you head absolutely fine and excellent location for the beach at Ao Nang and to getvo Raili beach etc


Nice spot in the middle of town. Dorms were clean and lockers in the room. Good place to stay.

This is a very small hostel, but perfect to stay for a week near by all the wonderful beaches in the area. It is very affordable, they have big rooms for many people or private rooms with air conditioning. Internet works fine!
