    Great hostel, really nice and clean & I ended up extending my stay an extra 3 nights! Lovely & clean, large locker per bed, plus wardrobe space & desk in each room. Plugs next to the bed & each bed has a lamp. Download the Rick Steves app for free guided audio tours. Great WiFi. Good map and tips given by host on check-in, good kitchen but only open 9-10 & 18-23 hrs. 4 bed dorm has nice view!

    Has a great stay at The Silk Road. I stayed in a single bed, private room. The room was great, just what I needed for my stay. Easy to find with google maps and short 15min walk from bus stop. Staff are lovely, friendly and happy to help with any questions. The house and room were very clean and bathroom/toilet space was large and worked well. Bed was comfortable enough enough if you're not expecting 5*. Windows with fly-screen and fan although still had some mosquitos. Would recommend 100%.

    We had a great one night stay here. The staff was lovey and very helpful. It’s near ATMs, water bus stops, and a grocery store. It’s also about 20 minutes walk to the main square. A few things to note... they only accept cash to pay for the room, which feels very outdated. It’s also very loud, you can hear everything going on like the door buzzer and people walking around outside. It wasn’t a huge issue, but I feel that it’s worth noting.

    Property was basic but ok - however, we were told that checkout was between 9.00-10.30am, and the sign on their door stated open hours for reception 9.00-22.00. We spoke to an abrupt lady when we checked in and said we needed to check out at 9am and utilise the luggage storage - this was fine. 9.10am and no one answers the door or telephone. By 9.40am, there are still no staff to be seen, and another guest waiting to check out answers the door for us. Totally unacceptable!! We left keys and went
