    Overall a great place to stay, easy to get there (just get a fixed price taxi from the airport or the docks), friendly staff, decent dorms. Basic but nice breakie included, and a very nice rooftop bar. Restrooms could have been better maintained, but although basic they had hot water. Could need a few more electrical sockets in the dorms. Very helpful staff, gave great advice on what to do and how to get around.

    This place is very homely & cosy, I love it! I wish I stay longer. Very good for bagpackers to mingle around. They have a lovely cat. 1 thing I want them to aware, the bed a bit old & squeaky, but since I only stay 1 nite I don't bother much. Bathroom supper clean. Downstair is an awesome cafe :) Location wise, perfect walking distance with everything in the city. Will come & stay here next time in KK.

    Clean and a great common area. I stayed at a couple of hostels in KK but this was the best. Staff were friendly and very helpful. One thing was that I was told this was the hub for sticky rice travels but other than some posters on the walls it didn't seem like they had any other information or ways to book it. I didn't ask so maybe that's all you need to do but I thought it would have been more obvious. Maybe it was because of low season. Great location a walk away to the city centre but quiet

    Girls at the front desk are a riot! Loved chatting with them. Staff are helpful & go above and beyond. Only stayed there one night, but the 4 bed/2bunk bed room was well air conditioned and comfortable. Washroom was well cleaned and staff was attentive to restocking. Mattresses didn’t have protective covers under the liner though. To me that was a bit off-putting. Common space wasn’t too bumpin’ from what I could see. Appreciated how close a good restaurant and the 7eleven were though.

    Hostel open from 11am-11pm odd times especially when your coming in on a 5am night bus, Went with a friend who was continuing on her travels and not staying there they wouldn't let her store her bags OR even hang out in the common area for an hour or two till her next bus because "she wasn't staying there." Place empty, so tired from night bus still couldn't check in till 130pm! Shower head has zero pressure I ended up having to duck down and wash my hair on the feet washing nozzle.
