    Amazing hostel. Excellent beds, WiFi and facilities. Rooms air conditioned, very clean bathrooms, hot and cold showers, bedside lamp and charger. Location is great, close to swimming and surfing beaches. Great roof top to chill, staff were very friendly and hosts were extremely chilled and helpful. Couldn’t have had a better experience in Madiha. High recommend.

    I booked this hostel for one night but I ended up staying two more and changed into a private room for my last night. The dorm had a locker and the beds in both rooms were comfy. Hot water in the private room was nice. The staff was very helpful and were happy to answer all of my questions. They hire scooters and bicycles. I got a bicycle for two days which was very handy in the area. There was free drinking water. A nice place to stay for backpackers who are looking for a little extra comfort.

    The stay was really nice! We only had the one night before going to Ella, but we wish we could have stayed longer! Clean beds lovely rooftop bar (was a bit quiet) but that expected this time of the year and was just after a big party at the doctors house, which is also only a short walk away. Staff helped organise a scooter for transport while we were there and also a car to Ella so super helpful! Will stay again if I return to Mediha :)

    Had a great stay, we have a private room. Bed was comfortable with a mozzie net and A/C that worked amazing. Plenty of parking space for a scooter or tuk tuk, in a great location with plenty of places to eat around and beach is a short walk! Would definitely stay here again!

    Really nice building with a lot of potential but unfortunately let down by small details. Floor of the dorm and bathroom very dirty & bathroom lock was broken. Dorm room door didn’t close and the drawer under my bed lock was broken. These things are easily fixable and would make the hostel 100x better. On the plus, beds are clean, really nice cold air conditioning, beautiful roof top for an evening beer and great location!

    There is so much more potential for this hostel great location! Security needs to be up graded fix the bottom lock draws under the beds. Perhaps as a suggestion have a separate place for bigger lockers. The bathroom I feel needs to be cleaned on daily basis as at times it was dirty. ( I totally understand and respect it also depends what kind of people you share in the room). I found that because I did not surf, I felt I was not included nor welcome as much. So great place for surfers to chill.

    We arrive at night at the hostel, we are “welcomed” by someone who I hope is not the manager who is blasting a movie while other guests I’m presuming are trying to get some sleep. We are asked to pay up front, I agree and I am given back the insufficient amount of change well because that’s just how things work around here, I guess. Room was decent and clean, WiFi terrible- impossible to get work done. Now time to sleep, dogs are allowed in the garden so as you can expect, a barking war at 4AM!

    This hostel has a lot of potential with its location and how big the house is. However it was very dirty, I regretted paying before seeing the room or I would have gone around the corner to TDH. My bed hadn’t been changed by the time I arrived around 4pm. I was overall disappointed by the vibe and cleanliness as it looked very social and clean in pictures. Great location really close to TDH and a great quite little beach.
