Be careful to not get scammed with the 'you need permission to get to that part of town as there's a festival going on' if taking public transport, you don't,don't go to the "tourist office" just walk to the hostel. Hostel staff are kind and sweet, great location and cared for our safety (moved us to a private room for free as two female travellers) the internet is intermittent (same as rest of India!) Our fan blew up so the room smelt of burning but otherwise a great stay! Would recommend.
The staff were so rude we didn't stay here. They watched us get ripped off by a tuktuk driver, shouted at us for no reason and threw the keys at us. DO NOT STAY HERE. There is a lovely hostel down the road called goodwill hostel who are so sweet-stay there instead.

The bikes to hire here are great to hire for the day. WiFi is a bit temperamental. Breakfast is delicious. Staff are sweet but sometimes rather loud and in your face.
Lovely staff and great hostel only complaint was that the internet doesn't work in the bedrooms.
Staff were amazing and so friendly went totally out of their way to help us! A great happy environment it feels like a home! The breakfast is amazing and the garden setting so peaceful. Great location close to big supermarket and walking distance to everything else. Great value for money too! Super happy we stayed here!
Really lovely staff and great hostel. We only stayed one night but the staff were so helpful and helped us make the most of our visit! It's in a great location to walk to the viewpoint as well as get to the main square. Internet was control by satellite so not that great but still a great place. Big kitchen to cook in too.
Has the potential to be an amazing hostel but the internet doesn't work in rooms only in reception and if you use Skype your ip address is blocked. The staff are very unhelpful and rude. To cook in the kitchen you have to hire out everything making cooking a big ordeal. The mining tour was great but no legal papers were signed to join it so maybe go somewhere else to make sure you're insured. The building is beautiful and it could be an amazing hostel but it lacks any atmosphere.
Internet connection was awful but other than that an okay hostel.
When booking a tour through the hostel make sure you find out about all extra costs as staff are very forgetful and don't tell you that extra money is needed. The staff are rather disorganized. The hostel is clean and the kitchen big enough to cook in.
The hostel was being renovated throughout our stay so noisy and not very peaceful. The rooms are very cold and you pay extra for them being heated. Breakfast isn't included and the oven doesn't work so we had to use the oven in another building to cook. Staff are nice but check in is late at 3pm and can't check in later than 1030pm. It's in good location and quite pretty.
Nice hostel. There is a dog so if you are scared of dogs maybe avoid this place. Lots of people work here and staff are very helpful and sweet. Great location for getting everywhere. Internet was a bit weak in rooms. Great breakfast and hot showers always! The cleaners are sweet and try to clean lots too which is lovely. Big kitchen to cook in too.
Had an amazing stay here the staff are so kind and informative and kindly upgraded our room! Location is great too, would definitely stay again!
There was no hand soap in any bathroom considering breakfast is included it wasn't very hygienic to know the staff didn't use soap. The pool wasn't clean or available for use. The dogs are very loud and bark early in the morning.
There was usually no hot water in the showers. The WiFi was down for 2 days and constantly cut off. The staff are sweet and try yet don't speak English so often communicating was impossible. We were put in a ten bed room yet booked an 8 and never got moved after asking three times. There were often power cuts frustrating when you're in the shower. The kitchen is tiny so cooking was impossible. The "washing facilities" is a sink in the garden.
The staff here are so wonderful and joyous to be around! They make it feel peaceful and homely.
