    The Deane Residence has a friendly, welcoming staff. In fact, they invited me to lunch once, and Zeena's cooking is so good I overstayed. The terrace on the roof is a great place to relax, and to enjoy the cool breeze. The residence is clean, quiet and secure. Wi Fi can be erratic at times, but they have two routers so you have an alternative. I had a great stay.

    This place is excellent. Everyone makes sure your needs are met. The owner and Hussian are truly a family environment.

    The Host is super nice! You get free tea and coffee and it’s super close to a supermarket. You can use the kitchen and can refill you water bottle at a filtert water tank!

    At dean's it feels less like a Hostel and more like you visiting distant family. The owners are very kind and friendly, they offered a home cooked dinner and we even went for a ice cream afterwards with all the guests. Would definitely recommend!

    Lovely clean room and the hosts were great. They even let us check in when we arrived just after 6am (terrible flights). No WiFi in our double room on bottom floor, but we did get signal on the lovely roof terrace - which was a great spot to chill on. Thanks for a great stay.

    The owner was friendly and his house was lovely. This isn’t a typical hostel. It’s a big house with rooms converted into dorms. I was in the 8 man dorm rw/o AC which I wasn’t aware of from booking. The room was incredibly hot. The one staff member also sleeps in the same room and is the loudest snorer I’ve ever heard, I had to listen to music 😂. Location isn’t ideal and requires a 20 min tuk tuk. Off season as well so the atmosphere for me was pretty poor. Can’t argue with the price..

    Will never return. Accommodation is run by a husband & wife. We arrived at 1am from the airport & the husband was kind & understanding. The room was clean and bathroom had hot & cold water. No Air conditioning in our room as we were led to believe, internet is non existent & the wife was extremely rude to the point where she was yelling at us for doing 3 seperate loads of washing (the washing machine was the reason for making the booking) we only stayed as we had already paid. Never again.

    The Deane Residence is way too bad and cheap in all matters as they show in reviews. No proper beds, No fan facilities, AC is not working properly, standing fan is making alot of noise, too small and congested bathrooms where even one cannot stand properly. The main thing was when we reached at the property there was a party going on where all girls were full drunk and were on the bed of our bookings where the owner didn’t said a word at all.
