    The best hostel ever! Very nice and friendly staff, especially during the crazy coronavirus situation many guests always had many questions every day and they always tried to help without hesitation. I ended up staying there for almost two weeks and I loved it. Very nice lounge area, good wifi, very nice food, clean and spacious dorm rooms. Excellent location. Hopefully I’ll be back in the future!

    Great stay at chief mau. Staff were very friendly and helpful and we loved the chill out spaces at the front of the hostel. Short walk to amazing snorkelling area and sardine run. Good food sold at the restaurant and also plenty of options for eating in the surrounding area. Try out the new gym up the road - they offer yoga classes too!

    Great vibe with large areas for relaxing and socialising. Wifi is quite good. We highly recommend doing the canyoneering with them also. Food is good and not too pricy considering Moal Boal. I would 100% stay here again.

    To summarise, great hostel in a great location. They will organise tours to canyoneering (full day) and whale sharks. Slightly more expensive than from a random location on the strip, however the guides are brilliant & food, photos, videos, water shoes are all included for the canyoneering! (These tours are great for solo travellers to meet other people and make friends) There is free water available in the hostel too. Atmosphere is more chilled in an evening hostel closes at 10pm.

    Loved staying here. Great to meet people and the staff and tours are great. Only thing is I stayed in both the 6 bed and 8 bed dorm...the 6 bed was like a dungeon compared to the 8 bed. So make sure to book 8 bed. They had hot waterfall showers which were great and clean facilities. Book all your tours through them, the canyoneering tour guide mark is amazing. It’s really close to the beach so you can see the sardines and turtles without booking a tour. I’d definitely stay again.

    Everything is great except I don't think they clean the bathroom daily. I stayed 3 nights but kept seeing same trash inside the shower room for 3 days, didn't even move!
