    The stay at the hostel was very comfortable and memorable. The hostel has a fridge, induction and oven as well. The owner is very helpful and understanding. Our bus was 5 in the evening but they allowed to keep our bags and let us stay in the living room. One cannot smoke and drink inside the rooms but they can go on the roof and have it. One can freely move around. The toilet and bathroom are clean. It was worth the money. Safe for the girls especially solo travelers.

    Really nice location, the rock beach, all tourist points, and famous restaurants are within walking distance. Rooms are a little congested and stuffy, as there is no ventilation. The host was really nice and warm, but there is no attendant, who is always present in the premises. The highlight was the rooftop, which they have decorated nicely, ideal for chilling out. There is a kitchen and washing machine, which the guests can use. Overall, worth every penny.

    You definitely get what you pay for. All the rooms but one don't have AC and just have a ceiling fan, if you close the door to your room at night it becomes dreadfully hot and makes it extremely difficult to sleep. Even with the door open, my friend and I struggled to be comfortable with the accommodation. The beds and pillows were stiff and average at best. Overall, the property was fine, just know that you're getting the bare minimum for your money at this hostel.

    I really enjoyed my stay there because I met nice Indians at the property who helped me with my traveling plans. The living room is nice to hang out and the location is great. I think I will cost it again :)

    Nice place. Not really a hostel experience but the best you could have around this area. The management is friendly and the place is walkable from the beach. There is only one bathroom and toilet. I was sharing the hostel with just one other person so, it was okay. In case, it is crowded, then that could be a concern. Otherwise, a neat place.

    this is a get what you pay for situation. I booked one night - there weren't many reviews and I was skeptical. The bed was one of the most uncomfortable I've been in - it was more a cushion than a mattress. There is also no AC, so the fans are just circulating hot air. There's only one bathroom for all guests. The best part of my stay was I met two other guests who also couldn't stand it, and the three of us left the hostel and split an airbnb. Needless to say, I do not recommend staying here

    The place was not a bit clean. It's a very old and mismanaged home that is being operated as hostel. Seems like there are no checks on how should a hostel/hotel be like.
