    Perfect is you are doing the swimming with whale sharks as you are on the first boat out. If your stay else where be prepared to queue for 4-5 hours from 5am onwards as that’s how long you will be queuing.Brilliant for one night before swimming with the whale sharks. Staff are lovely and helpful and the people in my dorm were lovely. Also everyone who stays there is there for the whale sharks so everyone has to get up in the dorm at the same time 5.45am Apart from that not a lot else to do here

    It was a lot better than I expected staying here. Reading the reviews I wasn't expecting much. But the staff were friendly the little huts were cool. There was a pool table. Everyone only goes for one thing so there's not much atmosphere but you basically go there for one night do the whales and leave which it is perfect for. Would definitely recommend staying here to be on the first boat in the water and miss the chaos that happens on the beach.

    Felt the need to write this review as some of the other reviews are so bad. This place is really basic but the owners are so friendly and the bed is clean. There’s nothing much in the area but the hostel is directly next to the entrance to the whale sharks so I’d only stay here if that’s what you intend to do the following day. The bed was clean and there was a mosquito net (which is highly needed as the wooden rooms have open bits so all insects can get in). Overall really pleasant basic stay!

    Great location to take the first boat out to the whale sharks in the morning. No-frills hostel, not much of an atmosphere as the majority of people are just there for 1 night.

    The staff are very helpful and do a great job of making you feel welcome. The huts are small, basic, but clean and have power. The avoid the bathrooms. Unfortunately, a restful sleep before your whale shark excursion can’t be had here.The hostel is right beside dozens of caged chickens. Did you know roosters crow every hour? You’re the first boat in the water to see the whale sharks. Which is great because immediately afterwards you’ll want to find somewhere else to be.

    Location is good for the Whalesharks but that's it. Far away from anything else. I booked 2 nights but I only stayed 1. Roosters also wake you up at 3am.

    It is located right in front of where the whale shark excursion is + you can book it directly from the hostel! The hostel is basic but the common area is nice. We stayed in the dorms, and had no running water in the bathroom and there are a lot of bugs! Due to the location the phone signal is poor and the WiFi is no existent. Around the hostel there is not many things to do/eat! Would recommend for one night to do the whale shark excursion!

    They screwed up our 'first boat out" deal. Made it out after 30.min wait.. super disappointing.!!! They forgot to get us in line for a boat or something and were stressing around to fix it. Made it out to the whale sharks eventually.. please low shower pressure. And clogged toilets. Only positive thing that they had overbooked and gave me their own bed in their dorm, and I appreciate that, thank you:) nice girl in reception.
