    Amazing atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff, cheap laundry services, clean open kitchen with filter water and the location is just perfect, very near to all main attractions. The dorm are super clean has all the facilities you need and the hostel itself is more than you would expect for the price.

    The best part of my stay was Nick the volunteer but he left now. Kitchen has no cooker but kettle was fine for me to make porridge. No atmosphere there is not anywhere really to hang out and talk to other travellers, could make the garden really great so I hope you do because it could be a great hostel.

    Hostel is great BUT manager/staff member was very creepy and best avoided!! I stayed for 4 days and spoke to him a lot, maintaining a healthy & friendly distance. On my last night he came onto me while I was alone in the female dorm. He wanted to talk about sex, I diverted the conversation. He said he was frustrated and asked if he could sleep in the room. I said no to which he responded 'maybe I'll come into the room in the middle of the night' I had to lock him out. Not ok!!

    Goodwin - he was both helpful and not helpful. Although there were notices put up in the hostel telling they could arrange Tuk Tuk and Bikes for rent, he never helped me with it. Whenever I asked, he told me you can go out of the hostel and take tuk Tuk, go to coco travels and take scooter. Very much money minded - as if the backpackers are going to run away without paying him. Too much of reminders - it is quite annoying for some people. He loves talking. A good company in terms of that.
