Nice place right next to little India. Nice staff and good breakfast. Lobby is always quite loud because the TV is always showing movies at quite a noisy level. Good wifi, but connection got lost easily as soon as you step outside to smoke or get away from the noise in the lobby. Facilities were cleaned regularly but due to the guest were smelly and dirty again right away. Not the hostels fault though.
The cheapest stay I could find on Lanta by far! In walking distance from the pier (even if you have a lot of luggage). The also provide bike and scooter rental at reasonable prices. When they closed the hostel due to the end of the season they even allowed me to stay one night there on my own!!
My 2nd stay here. Enjoyed it again.
Location is close to Hoan Kiem lake with a super market in walking distance and lots of cafes and little restaurants down the road. Staff is generally very friendly but a little too caring from time to time. Free internet PCs in the lobby. The 2 person private was excellent. Very spacious, big tv and really nice bed.
Very committed staff. They offer a lot of tours, but some of them are a little scammy. You will will make the same experience in the hostels as well though. Right in between the two roads with the most nightlife in HCMC but still very quiet at night.
Very friendly hostel with big chill out area next to the lobby where you can watch movies, meet othe people or just swap a book from the bookshelf. They also arranged our bus transfer to HCMC for us. Big upside is the free pickup from the bus station. It would cost as much as a 2 person private to get to the hostel taking a regular tuktuk.
Really small room and basic facilities, but we didn't expect any more for the price. The 'staff' was represented by a weird fella wo seemed a little indifferent to everything. If you ask him about transport or anything he will spill out some helpful information though.
Hostel was very keen on keeping out cirminals or unwanted house guest. Guidelines not to give the name of the resort or your room no., etc. to anyone were throughout the hostel. Staff was really friendly, too. Food at the adjoining restaurant was a little overpriced but tasty. Free bicycle rental is an upside as well, if you want to got to the temples of former Sukhotai or are just looking to drop into town for dinner. The 2 person private was really spacious.
Doors didn't close completely compromising the privacy in the 2 person private. Breakfast was basic but plenty. Staff was generally helpful though not the fastest.
