    We stayed in the 5 bed ensuite dorm fan room. 5th bed is located up some steps and is slightly private (a wall covers 1/2 the bed). Two fans are in the room with an incense to ward off the mosquitos - we did spray some insect repellent though! There's space to store your bags and a bench too which is handy. Bathroom was cleaned everyday we were there (better than most!) Staff were friendly and gave me some free rice when my case broke and water got into my GoPro! (Thankfully working again!)

    It's my 2nd time here and I am very happy with my stay. The restrooms are clean, the sheets are also clean. My entire stay (although 1 night only) was pretty satisfying.

    Great location, clean rooms, hammocks outside of every room. Only downside for me is that people burn trash outside at night near the hostel that made it really difficult to breathe and consequently sleep.

    Really good location - within walking distance to everything. Staff were so friendly and helpful in recommending tours and places to eat. Didn’t find it an overly social hostel due to there not being one main common area. Beds were so comfy.

    No AC, only fans. So be ready to get a little hot at night. Very nice staff. Cool hangout area with bamboos upstairs. Locations is very awesome. Suggest for short stays because the weather is hot. Also no locks provided, make sure to bring a lock if you want to stay here. Very hard working staff and friendly people.

    We had a private room and the room itself was amazing, with a small balcony and a hammock inside the room; it's almost an apartment rather than room. Location is spot on. The best wasn't the comfiest and there are roosters right outside the window who crow throughout the night (I thought they did it when the sun rose....but it's allllllll night). Because the room is of traditional construction, it doesn't keep the bugs out particularly well.

    Great place in the middle of the town, near bars and restaurants. Nice staff who give you free tea, coffee and hot chocolate. Only downside is it is very hot as they only have fans, however it’s near the sea so you can cool off or have a cold shower.

    Very Good

    My boyfriend and I decided to stay here as it had good reviews and it was really good location wise, the private room was lovely and it had basic facilities however, it was very hot as there was no air con, only 2 fans. There were also lots of little bugs which were everywhere. There was also a cockerel right opposite our room which started at 1am and didn’t stop until about 9am so we ended up moving to a different hostel as it kept us up all night.

    Well located hostel near the beach and local restaurants. Hooks in the showers would be helpful! And the mosquito nets above the beds could be more secure - one of my sticks fell in the night with nails jutting out. Also would be good if there were charging points per bed.
