This hostel is made excellent by the lovely lady who cooks and cleans and looks after the place working very hard all hours of the day. She is very friendly more like a homestay than a hostel. She even got up early to make us breakfast as we had to get our visas done very ealry. Thank you More

Just double check and confirm your stay with the host. When we arrived, there was no room for the 2 of us. The lady was amazing: she felt so sorry that she organised a tuktuk to drop us in a similar place but in different area. It was a bit disappointing cause we were very tired after 2 More

Nice place, cozy garden, average dorms. Very poor wifi, had to go elsewhere to book our next stay. We ordered and paid for a 6 bed dorm, got 4 bed dorm and 2 beds in the next room, but when we came to use the 2 beds the second night, they where taken - sold twice! We just slept with kids More
