Bunchun is a great hostel with great guys who run it - and a super cute dog! It's a good place to meet other travellers and the staff organize nightly outings for the guests. I'd definitely stay here again!
I would definitely suggest this hostel for koh lanta. I extended my planned stay a few days as I was liking it so much! The girls who run it are friendly, helpful, and remember your name. Each bed comes with it's own fan and the beds are decently comfy. The common area is comfy with a great selection of movies and breakfast is included!
I really enjoyed my stay at roommates and have been suggesting it to people headed for Penang. The staff were super friendly although language was sometimes a barrier. This was one of the cleanest hostels I've stayed in with comfy beds and a curtain for privacy. Breakfast was also included! I wish they would have given keys to the dorm doors, but they usually locked the front door and lockers are available.
This is a tiny hostel that makes good use of it's space. The owners are super cool and know what backpackers need. One of the owners even brought a group of us out for dim sum and a hike. Each bed has a curtain an cubby with a lock, but beds are stacked three high. Great value for the location!
This hostel has a great setting, great food, and is far away from the touristy part of yangshuo but not too far. I think I would have enjoyed my stay there even more if other backpackers would've been there as well, but one night I think I had the place to myself! I'm sure it's more lively in high tourist season. The staff are helpful and have great suggestions for how to spend your time there.
Great restaurant and bar but food was a bit pricy. The garden area was a nice escape from the city and movie room was a good place to have a low key night. Beds all had own curtain and small cubby. Would stay here again.
I don't really know how to rate this hotel because when i showed up they said they were full (even though I had booked in advance) and took me to another location that did not have many of the amenities promised. As I was paying for my room a couple other guests told me not to trust the staff as they were thee to rip you off and they gave me false directions when I asked for their help. Do not stay here.
