Excellent hostel. Not a fantastic location as it's pretty far from the nightlife on the island, but it is very close to the beach which is great. Brilliant facilities, cleanliness, etc.

Great hostel if you want to get a good night's sleep. Good tours here too - can get cheap tuktuks for the day to see the temples

Not a place for backpackers - more for couples or older travellers. No atmosphere here. Definitely feels like more of a hotel. Some of the staff were lovely but others were quite unfriendly and seemed more interested in getting money out of you straight away than in ensuring that the guests were enjoying their stay. The costs of food/drink and laundry were quite high. Having said that, the place is spotless & very secure so if you're just looking for a quiet place to stay, this place is for you

Excellent hostel in terms of facilities, location, cleanliness, staff friendliness, etc. However there's no atmosphere here so it's not a good place to meet other backpackers. But if you just want a clean bed in a good hostel this should suit you fine

Really enjoyed my stay here. Luu is probably the most friendly hostel owner I've ever met - what a great guy. He helped me out with tonnes of things. The hostel itself is pretty close to the town centre - about a 15 minute walk. The breakfasts are delicious, and so cheap! And the price of a bed here is excellent value too. I cannot recommend this hostel highly enough!

Excellent hostel. Brilliant location. The staff are very helpful and go out of their way to give you information on local sightseeing, beat modes o transport, border crossings, etc. The 2 free beers every evening are a great way of getting backpackers to mix, so you get a very good atmosphere in the evenings. I will definitely stay here again next time I'm in the city

Excellent hostel. Really friendly staff. Bit of a walk to town but there are bikes you can use for free so it's not a big deal. Dorms are fantastic, good wifi, great breakfast. Would definitely stay here again

Great hostel. Staff are so helpful and extremely welcoming. They sell tours but they're not pushy in the slightest. I booked my Halong Bay your and it was excellent. The facilities here are very good - clean showers, great breakfast, fantastic wifi. The common area is quite small so you wouldn't hang out there much to meet other backpackers. But other than that it's a fantastic hostel

Good place to stay in terms of location. Close to the centre of Thamel but far enough away that you can sleep at night. It's one of the cleaner places that I've stayed in while in Nepal. No real common area there so it's not great if you're trying to meet other backpackers. However the beds are good, staff are friendly, and they held onto my bags while I was away on a 2 week trek (they did this for free - which is pretty cool).

Great atmosphere here if you want to meet other backpackers. Good security - big lockers in all the rooms. Wifi isn't fantastic but that's the same all over Nepal. Great place to chill out and meet other travellers

Very nice hostel. The wifi wasn't great, and a bunch of kids were making noise in the hall for about an hour at 2am (but I guess that's not the hostel's fault). Nice hostel, nice location, good big kitchen too.

Great hostel, great kitchen. Very clean. I really liked the MASSIVE tv in the common area! It's a bit out of town but the local bus passes very close by and is a quick trip into the centre

I'm giving this hostel an average score, because we made a booking online 2 days in advance, yet the staff made a mistake and never transferred our booking from the online system to their own in-house handwritten system. Therefore they accidentally double booked our room. We were very tired when we arrived in Taupo as we were after a long journey. So this was not what we wanted to hear. As we were unable to stay here I scored everything average for this hostel. The staff were very apologetic
