2nd time. The problem is the same as in 2013: staff. it's understandable. The place is huge. Only 3 guys at recepction, queues waiting for checkin, get info, rent sthg. They don't know anyone staying at the hostel. There is even security guy who might not recognize guests from non-guests. They charge extra for towel €4, luggage room from €4 every 6 hours, breakfast expensive. But Infrastructure is great. Wifi, plugs, lockers. A money making machine, where you are just a customer, just a number.
Ambiguous hostel. They charge for towel €2, for locker €2, laundry is €9!!! Left luggage, €2/24hs. No common area 24/7: closes at 1am. Up that moment get out or to sleep. Location amazing, totally central. Very good wifi. Clean. Staff super friendly, Gustavo, the Hungarian guy and Anita in the kitchen. Breakfast ok for being free, tasty coffee. NO LOCKERS in room. Only lockers at ground floor, outside the building, behind 4 doors. That's bad! Great building, needs to improve some details.
Very good hostel. Excellent WIFI, helpfull staff, specially Vilma. Located 2km from Central station in central position, but not the city center. They offer excursion, discount cards, lot of information, towel rental. Cozy bar downstairs, not that pricy. Guest kitchen might be a little more equipped, but still super ok. Standard breakfast just toast or musli, but you can upgrade it or bring your stuff. Rooms big enough, plugs in every bed. lockers, clean bathrooms. Will defenetely come back.
Caye Caulker was pretty quiet (=empty) so it's hard to judge the hostel for the lack of ambient in the whole island. It was clean, nice beds, excellent wifi, plugs everywhere. Just a few rooms, still no reception, so really helps to confirm arrival time.
Perfect hostel. Great location only 30 minutes away from the airport. You walk 200m at O'hare and then 200m when you go out of the train to be here. Area full of bars and restaurants. Awesome terrace with view at the city. Specially at night, seems to be magic up there. Great common area, free coffee, good DIY breakfast, perfect wifi everywhere. Clean bathrooms, big dorms. Lockers Okey. Lot of informations available. Everything what you need in a hostel. Pricy? A little bit, but worth it.
Very good hostel. Not in the center, but 200m away from train station. Easy to come from Narita. Perfect wifi, clean bathrooms, good beds. It's relaxed, not party hostel at all. There's a kitchen but a better common area might be useful. Like a pool table or something at the entrance living room. Free coffee the whole day :) Worth the money. Staff very friendly. Booked one night, stood three.
Fine but depends in which room you are. First I was in a private, not very nice, but with air con, good wifi, priv. bathroom. Away from the Main Building. Then a dorm of 2 (yes 2) which was better, but 200m away from MB. Rooms around pool are great. More couple atmosphere. Good free breakfast, huge pool, pretty away from the beach and Legian street, but good restaurants around tho. Staff very friendly :) prices at the bar even cheaper than supermarket. Cheapest ferry to Gili. Worth the money.
Bittersweet experience. The hostel is really good. Perfect wifi. Nice beds, good aircon, clean. Good bathrooms. Well located and connected. I booked for one night and wanted to stay longer, but the guy (owner?) kept me waiting for an answer since the night I arrived til 1pm of next day. "I can't confirm you if I have room or not, please wait". I had no hurry and waited til I left to the hostel next door. Very unorganized and disrespectful. Pity, because I really wanted to stay longer.
It's one more hostel running only for making money and not for or by travellers. Everything is extra: towels, lockers, hostelworld fee, city tax, breakfast. Facilities are poor. Low maintainance. There is not even soap in the bathroom. Cheap, but rather pay a little bit more and go somewhere else.
What to say.... its probably the fourth or fifth time im staying here... There are cheaper options, of course. But thats why there is salmon and hot dogs. Highly recommendable. Great bar, perfect wifi, clean rooms and bathrooms. Nice staff... 10 points hostel.
Pretty nice hostel. Staff great. The room i was, was quite small, but ok. Good breakfast.
Great hostel. Pool table, kitchen, full breakfast, nice rooms. Very well located, wifi everywhere. Everything what you expect from a hostel. Is more expensive than others, but worth it.
This is a party hostel. Lots of activities to get the people together. Ideal for solo travellers. Staff very very friendly and dedicated to the passangers. They help a lot and also join the activities during the night. The hostel is really well located, close to everything at walking distance. Bathrooms were barely ok, mattress need to be changed, few plugs in the room and the wifi was coming and going. This are probably the weak points. But overall is a very good hostel, with focus in party.
What to say? It's the fourth time I slept here. It's an awesome hotel. Perfect location. Nothing better than arrive with the train, walk 50 meters and be home. Big rooms, really good beds, private bathroom. Little bit pricy but huge breakfast, nice staff. All facilities needed. One plug per bed, super wifi, towels for free. Great common and relaxing area. Will keep coming back.
For 100 bhats per night with huge pool, is just the best hostel ever. The room was huge and spacious. Big only bathroom for 12. Good wifi. Far from the nicest beaches of the south. It is like a kidney of the HR-cafe. You can go to the other one and use everything. Party is there too. You come here for sleep, which is very comfortable. The pool, very big for a hostel.
Is very important to understand you are in a beach town in Thailand. Power and water might fail in the whole Island. Location is great. Party street. Rooms were clean, staff cares A LOT of what concerned you. There were problems and they solved them. Good bathroom, lockers are at the reception (they could be in the rooms). Good beds. Good air-con (2 actually). 500m away from full moon party beach and 200m close to the pier. Of course is not an hotel, but for FMP was totally fine. Would come back
Good small hostel. Only 2 rooms. I was in both. They are different and one better than the other one. The opinion might change depending in which you were. But, both are good. They clean everyday, small bathrooms but still okey. Lockers in the alley not in the rooms. The owner takes care of everybody, makes you feel home. He also organizes activities for making all the people meat each other. Good atmosphere. Great location, close to the main road, the beach and the airport. Very good wifi.
We arrive pretty late in the evenign and left quite early. We didnt see much of it. Secure, well located (right by the SkyTrain), lovely staff. Nice rooms and bathrooms. Only bad thing were the stairs to go to the 5th floor. No elevator.

Is more like a hotel than a hostel. Clean, quite far from main attractions, good wifi. Lovely staff.

Giving feedback on a beach hostel is not the same as one in the city. There are things that are always gonna be different. Sand will be everywhere and you have to accept that. Great atmosphere. The staff is totally there for you. Comfortable beds, decent bathrooms and good beds. Party everyday yes, but not noisy in bedrooms. With a tuk tuk you can be anywhere within 15 minutes. Great bar at the beach. Lockers in the bedrooms could be added, but they have boxes in the reception.
Awesome. Nothing to complain. Good beds with air con, lockers in the room. Everything clean. Shared bathrooms very nice and clean. Perfectly located and connected. Plus, every tuk tuk guy knows where the hotel is. Great staff, very polite and helpful. Good common areas. Wifi everywhere and laundry machines. Perfect in every sense.
Is one of this hostels where everything is okey but something is missing. No spirit. Well located, walking distance to central station, old town and media hafen. Clean bathrooms and big rooms. Breakfast okey, nothing special but ok. Good common areas. Perfect wifi. Reception and kitchen closes at night, so you better be out or sleeping. Maybe will come back with friends but not for solo travellers.
There is a huge different when travelers are running a hostel and when you just run a hostel. It is a 4 rooms hotel with a kitchen and two shared bathrooms. The doors of the rooms are never close. Good ambient. Very relax. Good wifi. Be aware that they charge you for the hostel world commission 10%, the city tax €2, the shits €1,50 and towel another euro. For lockers another euro and you cannot use your lock if you have one. The lady running it was nice. Good location, not central but close.
Everything what a hostel needs. Been here for three times already. Won't doubt to come again next time.
I was about to book another hostel -cheaper- but i did follow other travellers comments. And there was no mistake. It was a great experience, most of all, because of the staff. The hostel is clean, breakfast good enough, coffee the whole day, very welll located and this "feel-like-home" atmosphere. The staff, amazing. Makes you wish to come back, at least to say hi to them. More than worth it, no complains at all.
We were only one night. Was very nice to stay there. Staff is very helpful and kind. We will probably come back to the same hostel in further trips. Complete breakfast, nice building, hmm... there are no windows in the rooms, but there is AC,so it is not that bad. Clean bathrooms and nice atmosphere. Maybe it is not as party and funny as other hostels, but we have to remember it is located in Colonia, where actually not much is going on! =) We liked it though!
