Was pleased that even though I arrived late and they were full otherwise that my bed was still available. Dorm rooms had that typical dorm room smell of sweat and ?? but were alright otherwise. They claim to offer hot water showers but the one I used only had cold. When I commented on checkout, I was told the other stall had the hot water. Wth? A sign to that effect would have been helpful. Wifi signal was pretty decent, but lack of common area was a bit of a drawback. Good for a solo traveller.
Nice hostel in a location that is great if you've come to BKK to shop! Also ridiculously close to the Sky Train. A little pricey for a dorm bed but hostel was very clean for the most part. The free luggage storage was a lifesaver. They need a "give away" shelf in the bathrooms to go with their "keep" shelf - really no need for a "keep" shelf, people should just bring their toiletries back to their room. Also, a full length mirror in the dorm rooms would be good touch, but these are not drawbacks
Fantastic location, would certainly stay again. Only complaints are minor - there is no outdoor common area which is a bit of a letdown and although the room is cleaned frequently it was often at like 6 or 7 am! The design of the shower area meant that the bath mat gets soaked after each shower, but again, not the end of the world. Super close to the beach and tons of restaurants. Big kitchen and hammock swings to sit and read in :)
The husband and wife team run an amazing operation. Super helpful with everything, I expect this will become a staple for backpackers in Manila, especially if people are just passing through (so close to the airport - can\'t be beat!) I actually stayed twice and the hot water shower was amazing after travelling in Palawan which seems to have no places with hot water for us backpacking types!
