As far as the owner is concerned, I'm left wondering how someone who doesn't like backpackers, is impatient with answering their questions and speaks to them in a rude manner would bother to open a hostel in the first place... perhaps he is over it? Or just in it for the money? Or maybe he is just a miserable human who hates all people? *confused*

Cute little place very close to Khao San, but in a little dirty, smelly alley. Not much common area space to chill but comfortable clean rooms and bathrooms.

I was staying at this hotel during the horrible earthquake that just occurred and even though every single member of the staff lost their own homes they were at work doing everything they could to help all of the scared travelers. I have never seen such kindness and selflessness. Even before the quake I was raving about the helpfulness of staff, but after that experience I am just amazed.

This hostel is full of Israelis and therefore quite loud. The hostel staff tries to control the loud guests, but its still very difficult to get a good nights sleep. Good wifi, fully equipped kitchen, nice art and decor.

I booked a hostel dorm but somehow ended up in a little tin box with 4 beds that was a walk all the way across the campsite from the building with the kitchen and reception. I had to walk outside to get to the bathroom. The little flimsy, metal rooms outside allowed all the sound in so you wake up every time someone in any of these rooms opens a door or says anything. I didn't intend to camp but somehow did. Please be careful about whether the dorm bed you book is in an actual building!

They've thought of details that many hostels are missing. (Bath tubs!) I've never been at a cleaner hostel or met nicer owners. They sit you down for a welcome talk upon arrival, give you a map and tell you everything you need to know. Alex was even kind enough to drive us to the Taro Bridge and down into the canyon for free. Nice kitchen for cooking and there is a super market and good, affordable restaurants near by. The bus station is a short, simple walk. Perfect hostel!

There was never soap or toilet paper and most of the showers were broken. You can hear everything in every room so you do not sleep. The breakfast is sad. The decor is cool though and the location is perfect. Some staff did not know where anything was and barely spoke English. The larger dorms are very cramped but the 6 bed ones are fine for space.

The wifi only works in one small area of the hall so everyone crowds around there. The dorms are cramped. You can only order meals for a few hours a day. Overall it is overpriced considering all of the inconveniences.

Thank you for your review.... first thing wifi is working in that area because we just started with it few days back and it take time to spread it...... their are timings to order meal and its enough for every one .... we are serving complimentary breakfast for almost 2 and half hours...... and it is a humble request if you have any problem please contact on reception.....
