    A cute and cozy place with friendly staff. You are free to do what you want. It has got breath taking views that make u just wanna sit and gaze forever. Each room got its own pretty balcony. The staff and the owner is really welcoming. Makes you feel at home. Don't forget to take tips from him about sightseeing.

    Definitely value for money, enjoyed a lot during the stay in Backpackers Den. Superb and very helpful hosting by Sumiran. Excellent place for chillout with a gang. However, location is a little bit problem during late nights.

    Had an amazing time! At first I was planning to stay for a night but I ended up staying three because of the awesome atmosphere and mainly thanks to the owner. The moment I arrived Sumiran was making sure I was feeling comfortable. In my last night there he was actually helping me to sort out problems with the train for two hours! The place was opened only three weeks ago (that's why there aren't so many reviews) so it's super neat.

    I must start by start by saying what an amazing host Sumiran is, had an absolute gala time here! Only challenge is the location, which is a long walk! But its an ideal if you are going with your frnds and party in evening, they have beautiful place where u can sit and party without worrying about disturbing others. You wont get that at all hostels

    Sumiran is a great host! Nice facilities, nice staff, beautiful property and an overall amazing experience. The property is a great place to chill-out, unwind and watch beautiful sunsets from the rooftop restaurant with Sumiran's 2 cute puppies: sunshine and moonlight.

    The dorm is en-suite and spacious. Staff are very helpful, friendly and easy going. They accommodate every need. The hostel is located in a relaxing area, surrounded by lush greenery. You need to get a taxi to the town centre as it isn’t walkable. There are two puppies in the property who have access to all areas. It can get cold and there is no heating in the room. Hot water supply was good. Washing machine available for laundry but no dryer.
