easy acces with the bus from airport, full kitchen, calm area but next to one of the best bar in town :)
a little far from downtown, but Fremont area is a really nice spot to hang out too. The staff are really helpfull and smilling all the time :)
the kitchen is in the room and there is only one chair to sit at the table, when the dorm is full (8) pretty much all of us have to eat standing.
Our door wouldnt shut properly because of the gap that wasnt fix well on the floor, when we went to tell the reception they say they would come to fix it but never came. So we always had to leave the door 'open' when we where sleeping or out. Otherwise, really comfy double bed in dorm, kitchen in the dorm really clean, really enjoy my stay except for the high price.
I ask info about parking in the street or somewhere else how it works with the meters and all they would answer is that they have a valet parking. They would give any tip on which street you could park they just want you to pay the big price for their valet parking. They gave me the wrong key for my room and once I get in the room the girls in there told me I have to ASK for the sheets.No activities is going on at the hostel and no parties...at midnight= no more of your cellphone music...
theres a 3$ surcharge if youre not a member! Kitchen is great one of the best ive seen so far!
not much cutlery... 1 fork, 1 spoon... very small kitchen only 2 seats! everything else is great nice rooftop patio!
Its nice that everybody get to do 1 chore every morning and it doesnt take too long. For that you get 'free' food which is donation from whole foods since its a non profit hostel.
Theres one of the girl that was working the night shift she was really rude, but Tom is really nice :)
bring your plate and cutlery, there is absolutely nothing in this kitchen
i wish i could go back in high season to really see how it is . i was there the last days before they close for the season so the pool was closed and not much at the mini market. and i never got my shot of ouzo
They are really welcoming and happy to tell you where to visit. I was happy, for the first time its not only about coffee drinker for those who doesnt drink coffee or tea there is also free hot chocolate!
check in is at 13.00. So I left my luggage and came back, there were nobody at the reception I waited 1hour before leaving and come back later.When I came back the lady was a little bit rude and fixing the carpet was more a priority then checkin me in.
The place is a little hard to find, its hidden behind the tree. Hostel P is written in cyrillic. I f you want to practice you Russian its the right place, I only meet Russian there. I cant remember her name but the lady that was at the reception when I arrive at 4am was really nice even tough I wake her up :s
1hour russian class with Igor is really great to give you a start if you dont know anything in Russian
Bring your toilet paper. Theres only one shower working properly for I dont know how many guests. You can take a cab to go to the hostel instead of asking them to pick you up. They charge me 30 000, but before they found me at the airport I bargain a cab for 15000. I tought their small fee would be cheaper than a regular cab. If only I knew how much the hostel would charge me. They dont book train ticket for you eventough they wrote it in the description.
There were a lot of hair in the shower, I could almost make a wig (no exaggeration). They say you can see the sign of the hotel easily, but at night its not that easy its not even on. When I found the hostel I tought it was closed eventough it says its 24 hours reception. They dont have tourist map they simply tell you to buy one in the store in front.
Check out time is really late, but it'S the same everywhere in Japan
Office hours should definitely be earlier and shouldnt close for 3 hours in the middle of the day. It's really not convienient if you arrive between noon and 3pm you have to wait all this time to store your luggage or to pick it up to leave.
The AC turned off in the middle of the night and early in the morning I woke up because it was too hot (32) I had to turn it on again. Its a good thing to save energy, but theres no point in having AC if its not working all the time you are in the room.
Some of the staff forgot it is possible to smile... If you decide to extend your stay you can only do it on the day you are checking out.
at 3.30 in the morning, one of the staff open the light in the room to show new guest the room and talked very loud. I tough it was really rude and irrespectfull
If security is your priority DONT go there. 1night we heard guys in the room next to ours yelling at each other 'fuckin do it' and then we heard slaps and 'child' screams and they were probably pushing each other cuz we could feel the wall shake. We never know what really happened that night but we ask to change room cuz we were scared staff reception did nothin he didnt really care took 1hour of arguing before we have another room...
I cant remeber the name of the lady, but she was working at night and she was really helpfull. She made a lot of call to help me to arrive on time to Railay, either by bus or by boat she was trying to find the best way for me.
Should have more pan and cauldron. Staff is very friendly and helpfull, but they are away really often and nobody in the office.
Should definitly have a kitchen, not just a restaurant. Dorm are quite cheap, but the money you saved you spend it in food in the restaurant at horizon or smugglers cove which is expensive
One of the kitchen is locked in the night, so you have to think twice and take your food with you in case you want a midnight snack or you are leaving early in the morning. A little bit annoying, but everything else is really nice
I booked a 12 female dorm and thats what its written on my bill, but there was 2 me sleeping in the room. The hostel didnt respect what i asked and pay for.
Quite cold in the common room and the kitchen is realy small. No glass only 4-5 cups for all the hostel. Otherwise, everything was perfect!!
