Best hosel in Melbourne.
Nice place but the internet didn't work at all.
Its a bit far from the town centre but they'll give you a free pickup from the bus stop and it couldn't be closer to the waterfall.
The owner went above and beyond the call of duty.
Nice place, didn't have any problems.
The guesthouse portion was probably the nicest drom I've ever stayed in.
Stayed for three nights and didn't get sheets, wasn't sure who to ask to get them because I didn't know who actually worked there. Its difficult to check in when reception is closed and since the hours don't seem to be posted anywhere I found it impossible to pay (they ended up charging my credit card without telling me).
One of the cheapest places around, and it had bedbugs.
Loved the onsen on the top floor, although it would be nice if there were ordinary (western) shower facilities.
Lots of information available on whatever you want to do in the area.
The place is more than a little cramped, but you're just going to be sleeping here anyway. Despite that the place grows on you after a while.
It was fine and dandy like sour candy.
Loved in in-house onsen.
Staff was very helpful with my Hashima Isalnd excursion and let me check in outside of the reception operating hours.
A little difficult to find in the dark, but excellent staff, facilities, and company to make up for it.
The security and the free breakfast seem to have declined in quality since I stayed here in May. Its pretty far from the centre of town but the cheapest place you'll find.
Could use some more bathrooms, the location was great. The free plate of food at the Woolshed was acceptable.
The staff makes an exceptional effort to keep the place clean and it shows.
Too many people staying there long term on work visa's. They seem to take over all the space in the rooms.
A bit out of the way, and the only common area is outside the front door. Good value for the money though.
I thought the free breakfast was interesting, they have something differnet every day of the week.
Ran out of room for me in the dorms, but they upgraded me to a private room so it was okay,
Wonderful place, the owner upgraded me to a private room every night I stayed there.
A fine place to spend the night, only a two KM walk to the park. Cold at night though.
Nice place to spend New Year's.
Very clean very modern, outstanding value for the cost.
A bit of a walk to reach everything in town, but good a lot of good information on tours in the area.
The staff didn't seem to know which beds in the dorms were occupied and which ones weren't, several other people and I were directed to occupied beds. If you left something on your bunk they moved it when they cleaned the room and didn't replace it.
Its a place so nice I stayed there twice.
The place had a very pleasing scent.
The place was fantastic, it is a bit of a pain to get here when a bus drops you off at Khao San road though.
It was a place so nice I stayed there twice.
I really liked that the place had a/c and hot water.
After the flea bag hostels I was forced to endure in Malaysia this hostel was a godsend. The cleanliness of the place came as a pleasant surprise.
This isn't the worst hostel I've ever stayed in, the directions on how to get there leave something to be desired and the location marked on the map was wrong. The owner tried to dissuade me from useing the 3RM bus and instead offered to drive me to the airport for 45RM because he claimed that the only way to catch a 1200 flight was to leave at 0600, and even then he didn't think I would make it. Didn't see any bugs but was so paranoid of them I slept poorly anyway.
The owner is truely a man of the people. I'm sure that if you had any kind of problem that he would take care of it in no time at all. He also had a BBQ on the roof while I was there with free food and drinks, an excellent value for my money.
Great location, and free breakfast too.
didn't realize that I would have to pay extra for sheets (good thing I had a sleeping bag with me)
A bit out of the way, but if you follow their directions it is really easy to get to.
It should be renamed the Lego Club, since that's what the signs next to the door say. There is no outdoor sign that identifies the building as being a hostel. Other than that no problems.
Staff was very helpful, never seen so many laptops in a hostel in my life. Kind of hard to talk to anyone when their all typing away on their computers and smartphones. A bit of a walk from the train and bus stations.
Was a bit hard to find the hostel in Pythagorio. Had to go to the tourist information. Owner was very nice, said I could check out anytime I wanted. Quiet area, wish I had stayed longer.
Very close to a lot of bars, clubs and the beach. Noisy area at night. Breakfast was English style I think.
The owner was extremely helpful, he answered questions I didn't even know I had. Let me use the internet at his internet cafe for free (within reason). Would have been impossible to find dorms if he hadn't driven me there from his hotel location. Only real negative was that on my first night I booked a double and ended up in a three person room on a fold out couch. Did get a discount for it though
The place is much better looking from the inside than the outside. The rooms were very clean and I felt they had a postmodern design look to them. Wasn't expecting it to be so close to the beach. The only real negative is that it was somewhat confusing as to exactly where to get off of the bus. Even though I was paying attention I still missed the stop and had to get off after the bus turned around.
