Great location and big rooms. Clean bathrooms and brilliant breakfast choices. No air-con in double bedroom we stayed in and windows did not shut properly. Overall good value for money..

Definitely a budget hostel. I usually don't write reviews, but I felt that the information was a little misleading. On the description for the hostel, they claim to provide air conditioning, but there is none in the largest rooms and common area. The room unfortunately has no screens, and there are mosquitoes. They say they have wifi however it is only in the common area. Book this hostel because it is cheap, not because it looks good. If returning to KK, I would check out a different hostel.

A cute hostel on Gaya street. KK has quite the tourist trend going on and this hostel is where you want to be. The staff were very nice and a late check in was no problem.
