Staff was great and helped me a lot. There are group dinners each evening which is nice. When i arrived, there was a dumpling party. The location is outside the city center, but easy to get to by bus during the day. The wifi connection was ok, good enough for facetime calls. Transfer to tiger leaping gorge can be aranged. Minus point: there's nothing around in terms of food, so you must eat in the hostel if you don't want to pay the taxi to the center. Busses only run until 8pm.
My dorm room was quite dirty (the floor and the bathroom). The bed however was great, much bigger than in other places. Staff is nice, facilities great (free use of washing machine). There's a quiet sundeck with excellent views on the top floor. I found the atmosphere a bit strange, there were quite a few older western people always drinking, smoking and playing ping pong throughout the day. I guess this depends on you if you like this or not, i just didn't meet people who fit to me when i went.
Great cheap food with lots of vegetarian options. Location is good, close to the park and walking street. Wifi is just ok, i assume it's because many people connect at the same time. The directions posted in the lobby for the bus/train stations are contradictory so best ask again. Buses in kunming don't have english stop names, so if you cannot understand chinese, try to count the stations (hostel staff can tell you at which stop number you have to get off/change buses).
Stayed in the single room for 400 Baht. Including A/C and dresser for your clothes. Wifi was working good, the kitchen facilities are great (there is a stove so you can actually cook) and you can use the washing machine for 30 Baht. Lots of showers/toilets. The location is OK, convenient if you want to take the train or MRT and there are bus lines very close by (for Silom, Siam, MBK, Siam Paragon and all the other shopping centers in that area).
Stayed in the single room, good value for money. The area is quiet, you can cycle to the city (which I loved to do - but beware of the dog in the dark) and the bikes are for free. The breakfast is good and the price ok. It was probably the hottest time when I stayed there and the single room only has a fan. Tip: If you want to cool down, go to the Sila Coffee Shop at the beginning of the street, it's air-conditioned, the iced cappuccino is great and I loved the interior design of the shop.
Free breakfast was great. Wifi worked very well, even in the room. The four bed mixed dorm is quite small and without window. Overall, good value for money.
I had a great stay at Rooftop. The cake was amazing. The location is very good and it was nice to stay in a dorm room with single beds. The garden shower on the rooftop was nice. Wifi was working in the lodge downstairs and most of the time in the room (but not always). The owners are nice and considerate. Bike rental for 10 MYR a day.
Wifi in room worked well. Stayed on the 4-bed female dorm which was very nice. Comfy beds, huge lockers, reading light and power outlet next to your bed. Not a party hostel (when I stayed there), which I really appreciated. As mentioned before, you cannot control the temperature of the A/C. It was a tick too cold. Location is excellent, bus terminals and train station easy to reach by public transport.
Good value for money. The rooms are small, but they have lockers and great Wifi connection. The staff's English was a little limited, but I managed to get all my questions answered. They have free bikes you can rent. Hot showers available from late afternoons into the night. A little dirty in the bathrooms in the evening (lots of hair), but still OK. Laundry facilities available for 50 NT$ (bring your own washing powder). Bus stop of the bus to/from Kaohsiung is very close by. Great Location.
Great and helpful staff, female dorm was nice, facing away from the street so it's quiet. Shampoo and shower gel provided free inside the showers. WLAN was working well in the lobby and communal areas, not so well in the room. They have 2 bikes which you can take for free. Lockers are in the kitchen. They also have a pond with fish and crab. Beware of the crab, it does not always like to stay in the pond ;-)
Coffee Shack is paradise. Great food, awesome location, nice day trips. The shared bathrooms were clean, spacious and nicely decorated. I stayed in the Rond dorm, which was spacious enough. It's close to the bar so it can get a bit noisy. The Hall in the Wall Hike was great. The area around Coffee Bay feels a bit like The Shire from Lord of the Rings, just at the ocean.
Loved the place! Great food, awesome views, spacious dorm (Blue dorm) with two different rooms + veranda. Cintsa is a quiet place, great if you want to get away for a view days. But you can also have a great time at the bar at Bucks.
The staff was nice and helpful, the room was clean, the design of the Hotel is colorful and modern. The breakfast was free for us and the selection was ok. There's a bus going to the Opera and the Eiffel Tower almost in front of the Hostel (line 42), which was very convenient. Additionally, the metro and Garde du Nord are really close. Although the area around the Gare du Norde didn't seem so secure and nice like other parts of Paris.
