Very friendly staff, great location. I stayed twice already. Book in advance if you want to get a bed.

No vibe, clean place to stay, away from the center, close to the beach (which is not nice, go to the island in front). Nice staff.

I am sorry to see this review, as the location is exactly as discribed, I can's see how it get's that low of a rating, and value for money? We are the second cheapest hostel in Pattaya, the only one with a pool, AC in the bedrooms and in general, a really nice building. None of the beaches here are picture perfect, to see those, you will have to visit the islands, as mentioned. Koh Larn is just a 30 baht / 40 minute boat ride away. About the vibe, it all depends on how full we are and how social our guests are, if I remember correctly, you were the only one staying at the hostel at the time, and then it can be a bit boring, as most hostel guests are looking for company. We hope that you will visit again some day, when we are busy, then it will be a totally different vibe :)

Overall, it's a very nice place to stay. Not great, but OK. I could recommend it.

It's located right in front of the beach, but that's the only good point about it. DON'T BOOK BUSES OR ANYTHING WITH THEM. We booked a bus and ended up in a super crowded minivan, all the way to Hoi An (which was not cheap at all). Hours before leaving, we asked for the tickets we had paid, and they wanted to make us pay again and they were not sure if there were bus tickets or not, because they hadn't got them for us. Not serious at all.

Thanks for your interesting review - we actually don't sell the bus tickets ourselves - we have a guy from the village that sells the tickets on our behalf - we try to empower the villagers by having their own little businesses. Sometimes guests do not have the money with them and ask to put the price on the hotel tab - so this is unfortunately where the confusion lays with the payment situation and for this I apologise. Our team are still learning how to deal with western customs and ways and we appreciate everyone's patience when an error is made or confusion is present. Also - as regards the buses - we have checked and recommend the buses that leave at the best times and charge the best prices - as we don't actually run the bus companies we are unable to guarantee if the buses will be crowded or otherwise - I think that you would have to be very lucky or pay a lot of money to avoid that in a country like this. You are, of course, at liberty to make your own arrangements and book your own buses if you think that you can do better! I hope that you are able to enjoy the rest of your trip despite this obviously horrendous experience for you!

It's cheaper than the majority of the hostels in Singapore, but it's just OK.

Wonderful hostel. The staff is amazingly friendly, I felt awesome while staying there. The dorms are comfortable and the common area is very nice. One single problem with this hostel (which seems to be a problem in some parts of Malaysia): internet works really bad or, at times, it does not even work. Leave your cell phone behind and enjoy Penang and this wonderful hostel!

The reception guy (which I don't remember the name) is helpful, but he will try to charge you more for everything (motorbike rental, ferries, etc.). There are better hostels for sure, I would strongly recommend looking another one.

Expect for Max, the staff is not willing to help or cooperate, once they get the money, that's it. It is also far away from Haad Rin, they charge you to use the lockers, there is no atmosphere, and I could go on and on... Just stay somewhere else, there must be something better in Koh Phagna.

The staff was definitely unhelpful. Once they received the money, they "cleaned their hands". Unless, of course, you want to hire some other service. Location was not the best either, since you had to move around to find nice beaches or some night activity. I would stay somewhere else.

First night 10 euros, second night 17 euros for the same room on a Wednesday, wired. Hotel turned into a hostel. Very nice and clean, but difficult to meet people. There must be something better in Berlin for this price.
