    The single hut was nice, however lots of mosquitos so the net and the plug-in mosquito repellant they provided were necessary. Just a 5 minute walk from the main walking street and it was well lit and easy to get to and from the property. Also provided water bottle refills. Lots of planned events so super easy to meet people of all ages. Quiet during the day as everyone was out and about so it was nice to relax in the peace and quiet by the hammocks. They shut the music off around 11pm.

    Great hostel with a lot of happy and friendly people! Staff was fantastic! Shoutout to Varin for helping me out and driving me around when I lost my passport, she was super helpful and we had a ton of great conversations! As well as Gun who’s smile made every cloudy day a little bit sunny 🥺 Call me when you go to Norway babe. Pool table, good food and different activities everyday made the stay even better. Would definitely recommend!!

    Had a fantastic time at Purple Monkey. Marlena and Matt included me in everything from the off and helped me with any problems I had. Marlena was also my nurse away from home when I got food poisoning! Great atmosphere, cool people and some nice facilities to chill for the day.

    It's cheap and has a very fun atmosphere, but if you're not looking to party, this is the wrong place to be - and even if you are the beds and facilities leave a lot to be desired. The basketball court and surrounding area was a nice tough though.

    The hostel has lots of facilities (muay thai gym, pool, football pitch, basketball, bar, pool table) and is very cheap with a delicious breakfast in the morning. It was a bit too loud for me as the music wouldn't stop till 12 every night. The deluxe dorm was very cramped but the bed was comfortable enough, the shower was nice and hot but the toilets were the cleanest. Perfect if you want a party and not much sleep!

    We booked private rooms with shared bathrooms. When we got there at 2 PM there was dry vomit in the bathroom we were supposed to shower in. On top of this, the rooms themselves are basically chicken coops. 4 posts, plywood floor, metal roof with a mattress and light inside, there were also no photos on the site showing these “rooms.” We asked for our money back after seeing the rooms and they said no. They gave us money back for one night, but kept the money for our first night. Horrible. Dirty.
