More a place for Chinese or locals than western travellers. No atmosphere at all as no other nationalities other than non-english speakers. Very cold, althougn the bed did have an electric blanket, it was a single one on a double bed! Bed was really, really hard. No privacy in the room as no bathroom door at all! An odd sort of place.
Rooms are basic but clean, good air con plus a mosquito net. Staff are really helpful, going out of their way to help, I even got a scooter ride to the ticket office to make a booking. Nice place.
Can definitely recommend this place, rooms are spotless, plenty of clean towels & linen & most have a/c. The pool is really clean (if a little warm!) and there are sunloungers and deck chairs. The breakfast is good & the kitchen produces wonderful western or local meals for a couple of $ The travel agency in the hostal will arrange trips, buses, tuk tuks & even visas. Some staff have limited english but are all really helpful & keen to make your stay great. I would definitely stay here again.
Adrienne is really friendly and accommodating and helps with any problems you may have, including a run into town on your first day for supplies, scooter hire etc. The bungalows are really cool, though you will need to use the fans, and there can be a lot of ants - dont leave food out! Main house was a little quiet, but I was there in the off season. Swimmin pool is a blessing in tne heat, but could do with being colder! Location is good, just out of town a little way, bit close to the airport!
Nice clean place, with a laid back friendly atmosphere. Good facilities such as quiet room, library and wifi area. Staff werereally helpful and will book buses, excursions etc. Good security with door entry code. Kitchen was very well equipped, but a bit on the small side with no prep area. Also is locked between midnight and 8 am, so if you're on an earlytrip next day ddon't leave your packed lunch in the fridge! Breakfast is really good but doesnt start till 8.30!
Enjoyed staying here, building is a little run down and kitchen is not the best I've seen but good atmosphere, warm & friendly. Claudio is a great host, and incredibly helpful.
Place was very shabby and run down, and smelt very badly of toilet pipes! Not the cleanest hostel I've stayed in, but the bed was comfortable and tbe showers were nice and hot. Concierge was very helpful and went out of his way to assist me.
I really enjoyed staying here, the staff are friendly and the place had a lovely relaxed, warm atmosphere, i felt very much at home. Clean & comfortable, lockers in the rooms were great. Rooms a little on the small side but normal for a hostel. Clean, well equiped kitchen. Bit of a walk up the hill at the back of town but the view is well worth it. Highly recommended & would definitely stay here again.
