Hostel or hotel is old and run down but friendly and convenient. Was perturbed to discover that walk in price only 25 euro while I paid 31.66 euro for same room on hostel world. When I queried difference was told by manager that the 7 euro difference was hostel world service charge! Was not aware HW charged a fee! On the invoice it's called a deposit! In this case I will consider a different method of booking rooms in future.

21st Feb 2016

There was dog poop on the hallway as I entered! The pool was full with green water! None of the toilets flushed! The kitchen was always dirty and had cockroaches in cupboards! The handle on my bedroom door kept falling off. The outside sliding door in bedroom that lead onto a shared balcony had no lock so room was insecure. Several power sockets through out house had no covers and I got a slight shock from one in bathroom. Rubbish scattered throughout house. The worse hostel I've ever been in!

The hostel was one of the dirtiest I've ever stayed in needs professional cleaners through. Walls and showers .Dirty girls panties and several used towels lying in bathroom. The kitchen had only a kettle two cups and two knifes. Nothing more. Excuse was that guests steal things.no curtin in bedrooms so lights at night and sun shining in at 5 am. The manager is a nice guy but there is no information other than bus around map on walls. No pampers or info available.

Several of the amenities were not available, ie there is no swimmimg pool, television, dvds, board games, We had to change rooms the second night. The breakfasts were excellant but the evening meals, both with chicken, contained nothing but chopped up chicken bones and little or no meat. The accommodation at $11.50 was expensive compsred to other places in Sri Lanka.We were offered a tuk tuk and tour for 7000rupees and found another couple offred same tour for 4000. Do shop around....

This hotel is not the one advertised on hostel world. They have changed both the name and the location. The manager did reduce the price of our $22 room to $10 but we then discovered other guests paying $7.50 for similar , room. He blamed Hostel World for the discrepancy and offered very little else when questioned about this confusion. The address of Sapa Golden Terrace Hotel is given as 11 but Sapa Queens Palace, the new name is found at 11a in same street. I searched for the original hotel bu

Didnt get to actually sleep here because after booking and paying deposit for 7 people gor 2 nights $18US. And having this confirmed, the hostel emailed me the next day and cancelled booking saying they were over booked. Tolded me to contact hostel world to get refund. Took several emails for this to happen but now have said refund in pipeline....wad most annoyed when i visited Golden Gobi to discuss this with manager and have him laugh at me and say this wasnt his problem!
