Hostel is about 20 min. by foot from the trainstation. It's easy to find and by foot you might reach the harbor and the sights there within 5 min. Hostel itself is in a calm area and the house policy says that you need to be silent after 22:30. Staff, however, does not keep its own rules. There's only 1 toilet and 2 showers for all the guests but surprisingly was never a problem when I was there.
The location of the hostel is really excellent: just a few minutes away from the train station and about 10 minutes by foot to the city center. Francesco is a very nice guy and always willing to have chat about Europe and all the places he has already visited :-)
Located quite close to the train station this hostel is a good base for discovering the city and day-trips to other cities.
BEDBUGS. The hostel is well situated about 10 minutes from the city center. The only problem is that already the first night I was biten by many bedbugs. I stopped counting after 83 bits (left arm + hand only). The lady there does ONLY speak Italien so it was very hard to explain the problem until I caught some bedbug. She moved me to another room however the following day I had some more bites and left immediately, even though I've paid for 3 nights. You'd better find another hostel!!!
The hostel is a bit far from the city (about 25 minutes by foot) but it's possbile to walk. In addition there's a bus. If you arrive by train, just cross the street and hop on bus #70. Tell the bus driver to let you out at bus stop #251. The staff there's very friendly and helpful and the hostel has all the facilities you might need.
The hostel is situated in reach of all the main sites within some minutes, it's a bit hard to find though. You'd better search it on google maps and use a print out. The hotel's terrace offers an awesome panorama view! :-)
Hostel is very centrally located. Close to the train station, close to the old city center. It is very easy to find. Rooms are very spacious and clean, staff is nice and helpful.
The house is in a nice area a bit above the city. It's a bit tricky to find (near a tunnel). Use your navigation tool to search house #10 and then walk down the stairs. There's a free public parking not too far away. The owners are nice people and are fluent in English. However, the lady enters the appartment day and night to turn off the AC if you put it on 22 °C or lower.
Hostel is very centrally located and has a parking nearby which is included in the price. Our room had AC and a private bathroom, so no complains :-)
Nice hotel and excellent host. Hotel is situated just opposite the train station (Lyon Perrache) and is in walking distance from the old town. Breakfast is nice as well (has to be ordered additionally at arrival). Room was nice and they even put an extra bed into the 3-bed-room so each of us had his own bed (1 double, 2 single beds).
I booked a room with a/c. When I arrived they gave me a room with a/c but the remote control didn’t work. It was possible to turn on the a/c but it was way to cold to sleep in the room with a/c running and way to hot without. The staff hardly speaks English so it was really difficult to explain them the problem and it seemed they didn’t bother. I had to fight for another room. No map and explanations of sights available and neither is common room. Shower and cleanliness were ok thou.
The staff of the hostel, especially Kunthea, is really great. They are eager to help, explain what kind of tours to Angkor Wat you can do, give you a map with sights on etc. The hostel was very clean and the food they offer in the restaurant was very tasty. Only negative point: there was not pressure on the pipes, so taking a shower or using the toilet on the upper floors was not possible. I could use the one’s on the ground floor instead, so no big problem.
Staff was very nice and helpful. They booked a daytrip for me and organised bus tickets which were not the cheapest but on the other hand the trip to Phnom Penh worked out very well. Dorm room was ok, shower worked and I’d the location is good cause everything is in walking distance. They don’t offer breakfast, but a bakery is around the corner. A/C was not too cold in the dorm and I didn’t see any insects.
No real complains but not enthusiastic either. Cleanliness could have been better, the breakfast buffet, however, topped what I had in all other hostels. Old town is in walking distance (15 minutes) and if you take a bike you can be at the seaside within 20 minutes. Shower had not too much pressure but was ok, room had a/c and no problems with insects.
Hue backpackers is a place where you will definitely meet other travellers. They have an enclosed bar/pub on the first floor but no need to worry about sleeping: it closes at 11 p.m. so you will get some sleep. Staff is nice, they have maps prepared with the most important things on. Room had A/C and shower worked ok. No problems with mosquitoes or other animals.
The staff of the hostel, especially the owner, is really great. They are eager to help, explain what kind of tours you can do, give you a map with sights on etc. The room had A/C and fan. Shower had pressure, so no problem with showers. As for the cleanliness: they cleaned the dorm room during the 4 days I stayed there but I had the feeling they did not clean the bathroom. As for the breakfast lady: I always had the feeling she was pissed when someone came to get breakfast.
Nice hostel with excellent staff. The owner is British and he knows a lot about the area and what you can do there. The hostel is quite big so you will meet a lot of travellers there. I was glad I had a room with a/c as it was really hot there in March. Only negative aspect: they don’t give you toilet paper, you need to bring by yourself.
The hostel is nice and clean and the staff eager to help. Furthermore they have some kind of common area where you can meet other travellers. It’s easy to go to the main sights of the town by bus. Only negative comment: they did not always have toilet paper so I was glad I had some with me.
The hotel is situated not far from the main sights of the city. However, I strongly recommend to TAKE A BIKE, even if only for half a day. Had a room with AC, which was fine. Only problem: when I came home around midnight, I found 2 big cockroaches in my room. When I complained about it the next day, the management immediately moved me to another room. Felt clean and safe there. The place is more a hotel than a hostel, so don’t expect a party place and common rooms etc.
The hostel is situated not directly at Khao San road but a few meters down a small lane which is good cause you can’t hear the noise of Khao San road. On the other hand I didn’t like the fact that the staff there does not speak English. Furthermore you normally need a key card to have access to the area where the rooms are. However, whenever I came back from sightseeing in the afternoon, the door into the area where the rooms are was open. So I am not sure what they have the security system for.
Location of the hostel couldn't be better. Less than 5 minutes from train station and about 5 minutes to the market square. Stuff was very nice. Especially Natalia was always eager to answer questions and to help out with informatin. Breakfast was good, they offer a buffet. As for noise: the walls are very thin. If someone was running on the floor or even talking loud in the other room you could hear it. As heating system was not turned on it was damned cold but they help with extra blankets.
Staff of Corner Hostel was really great. Always nice and eager to share information and help in case of questions. The location of the hostel is also great. By foot 20 min. from the train station but easy to find and directly at the entrance to the old town. Rooms were ok. What I did not like was that it was damned cold in the room during the night. I needed 4 blankets in order not to freeze. Breakfast was ok. Showers were clean.
The hostel is not hard to find if you know that the entrance is in the inner courtyard. The hostel is very clean and the area is silent. However, all the sights and partyplaces are close by. The walls in the hostel are not very thick, meaning you can hear if people in the next room are talking load but the hostel offers ear plugs :-) Breakfast was good, showers were very beautiful. Only pitty: it was hard for me to get to know people but that might be due to my sightseeing schedule.
I had a very nice stay, thank you Rafal.
I just used the hostel to sleep there as I came to Faro late in the evening and had to take an early flight the next morning. Therefore I only was interested in a bed and a shower. The hostel had both :-) Can't tell anything about the hostel besides that.
VERY friendly and welcoming host, very nice atmosphere at the hostel and VERY clean. description for the way to the hostel was not really good but we finally found it and from then on everything was fine.
Location of the hotel was excellent, very close to the train station. The staff was very friendly, speaking English, Spanish and even a bit German. I had a private 2 bed room together with my GF. Room was cleaned every day, like in a hotel. Breakfast was better than in some hotels that I've been to. Only thing I missed: the hair dryer was broken!
I stayed in the hotel while doing a diving course. The location of the hostel is very nice. Just around the corner there's a supermarket where, there are restaurants and it's not too far to the sea. The hotel was clean (cleaning every day), equpiment of the room was good and the price was ok.
Very nice hostel. Good situated. No mosquitos in the dorms (only in the PC area). I got a good explanation about where in the city I can find what was important to me. When I arrived at about 3:00 in the morning it was tricky to make my bed cause there were 2 people sleeping already and I did not want to wake them up. In other hostels in such a case my bed was made for me. If you can: go there on a Saturday when Marcos is working. Marcos was VERY helpful and friendly and even showed me around.
+) The hostel is situated between the train station (4 min) and the centre of the old town (5 min) (excellent)! -) No kitchen available (cooking not possible). -) No check-in during the day and no person from the hostel available during that time. You\\\'ll get your own key but after check out (11 a.m.) you can\\\'t get inside again which was not comfortable cause our train left at night and we had to take the luggage with us all day long!!
