    Unreal hostel, so many Canadians stay there! Tons of activities to participate in. Definitely an older hostel, but you really don’t need anything spectacular.

    WE LOVE PAI AND PURPLE MONKEY! Super good facilities- bar, pool, hammock area, grassland, pool table, basketball, mauy thai area- was fab! Both western and Thai staff were great, gave it a really friendly atmosphere. Food was a tad pricey for portion sizes. Stayed in cheapest room first night, was okay- upgraded room was a lot nicer for not a lot more money, would recommend. Short walk to walking street, not too far after a night out! Overall a really positive stay, had a great experience.

    Atmosphere was great, friendly staff and the bar was a great social hub (loads of games/activities to do). The pool and hammock area was lovely, didn't use the gym but it looked good. Our bedroom however had LOADS of mosquitoes, the bed didn't have a net and despite using repellent, we were both covered in bites by the morning. The staff didn't seem to care too much when we complained - cleanliness didn't seem to a priority. Good hostel if you want to party & drink, but not the most relaxing.

    The rooms are pretty basic but we felt that other aspects of the hostel made up for this. The atmosphere is chilled but also very social so a good balance. The free buffet breakfast was so good and definitely made it good value for money. Only problem for us was that the pool was out of use when we were there, obviously doesn't occur all the time but a bit of a shame.

    I can see why people enjoy staying at the purple monkey. It has a good social area. I also think it depends what room you stay in. We booked a 16 bed fan room, which we really didn’t enjoy. I know fans aren’t going to make a room as cool as AC but we had one large fan in and two small ones and the fan would never reach the bed I was in so sleeping was boiling. Doors open all day so lots of mosquitoes, they have nets tho but still got bitten. Just not for me but it might be for u. Staff r lovely

    Stayed in AC 4 bedroom. Read some reviews about cleanliness but decided to risk it for a night. Room had attached bathroom that was the cleanest part, bedroom was rustic but overall seemed clean. Only issue is cracks in walls allowing bugs and stuff to get in - saw a couple lizards but they didn’t bother us when we were sleeping. Staff was lowest point, all the hostels I’ve stayed at had a super helpful front desk but not here, they seemed annoyed we would dare bother them with asking questions.

    Disgusting false advertising! This place is a complete whole, it is dirty and advertised falsely with questionably high ratings. The private rooms are a wooden shack with a metal roof which draws in the 30+ degree heat and you are given nothing but a fan on the floor to keep you “cool”. In terms of the facilities - there are none! Our room was a mattress and tired looking quilt on the floor, the pool is not accessible for people to get in or out of and is not filtered. DON’T STAY HERE!!
