    Really comfortable hostel for the price! Staff were really friendly and helpful. The rooms aren't air-conditioned but we had two fans which was more than enough! Right in the middle of everything and cheap beers! Would definitely stay again.

    Good relaxed atmosphere. Not much of a party hostel. Great if you’re doing a PADI as it is right by the beach. Really nice communal area. Can be loud at night as it is right on the road so bring earplugs. No AC but good fans and it’s open so no AC is not a problem. Mosquito nets provided. Staff are great and cheap beers and breakfast available.

    The dorm is a big open room which is great for fresh air but not great for blocking out people’s noise. Free water. Cheap breakfast. Close to everything. Helpful staff if you want to book tours etc. check out the sardines!

    I wasn’t sure to start with but this hostel grew on me. It’s basic and Doesnt have have a bar. A few small social areas which were rarely used. The staff were lovely. Unfortunately no air con only fans and no hot water. Location is perfect with the sardines, beach bars and restaurants only a few meters away. The private bungalow rooms were very nice. The dorms very basic. Tours and transport can all be arranged with the staff. That all being said I did have an awesome time here.

    Great for a cheap stop, right next to the beach to do the sardine run, plenty of restaurants in walking distance too. Rooms were quite small and very open, lockers were separate to rooms but always felt safe, biggest problem was no AC in any rooms so hers VERY hot. Great cheap breakfast and lovely staff.

    The place is pretty cheap but you get what you pay for. It’s in an absolutely awesome location but there is no AC which makes it very hard to sleep on hot nights, and my room had no functional door, which I thought was a little on the odd and unsafe side. I ended up leaving a day early because it was too hard to sleep without the AC, but it was a nice place to meet other people.

    It's right in town close to the action. Swimming very close by. Nice place to meet some other backpackers. Upper dorm room for 12 is just above the street so Sat night it was quite loud quite late, although rooms further back likely would be quieter.

    A nice hostel, very basic, but friendly staff. However I got BED BUGS and staff weren’t very helpful about the situation and offered no form of compensation, as well as denying it. As we had booked a number of tours through them and stayed for several nights I felt they didn’t deal with situation very well!

    No aircon so it gets hot at night. Nice staff and dorm, and chill bamboo terrace to hang out. Cheap breakfast and beer available, and good location. Its a simple hostel though.
