    Prime location, just a short walk to the whale sharks. Rooms and bathrooms are nice and clean. Staff were very friendly and polite, gave helpful suggestions on where to eat.

    Super fun place with nice fun staff, room was nice but no wow. The top floor has a bar (with lots of free drinks), pool table, swimming pool, arcade machines and live DJ. Vibe 10/10

    Really only stayed here the one night before my whale shark tour in the morning. Good for that sort of thing as the pier is only across the road! Nowhere to chill out and meet others though.

    Very basic. The hostel is a good base if you're seeing the Whale Sharks but there isn't any atmosphere. No food either and so I decided to leave a day early.

    Stayed here August 2022. Seems like COVID hit this hostel very hard, since everything was closed and there wasn’t the nice friendly atmosphere that we saw in the photos and reviews. Their locks on a few doors weren’t working, which made us feel a bit unsafe, but the owner let us stay in a different room once we expressed our concerns, so we appreciate this. Also, some rooms without AC are a bit moldy, which might be a problem for people with breathing conditions.

    We stayed here to go swim with the whale sharks! The lady at the front desk was short but relatively helpful. She said the tour guide would be there for sign ups between 9-10 PM (mind you they advise you to be ready at 5 AM. We sat outside our room, there wasn’t a common area/lounge, from 9-10:15 PM. Ended up not seeing Whale Sharks because of listening to the horror stories of the line and not having a guide. They did have a USB drive with some good movies however.

    There really isn't anything wrong with this hostel but when I stayed I found the area it was in (right outside the whale shark watching) was awful. No restaurants, nothing around and the hostel doesn't sell food. You have to get a bus into town instead which takes 10 minutes ish but the busses just arrive as and when they please. The atmosphere in the hostel was lacking, I had 2 nights booked but left after 1 cause I had seen 1 person the whole time.

    We stayed one night (were meant to stay two) and when we arrived the toilet wasn’t flushing, in the morning we had no water and then after returning to our room the bathroom/room had flooded - we told the lady at the front desk who said she would clean it but never came back to clean it. There was two fans in the 8 bed dorm and they did nothing so was super hot over night. One positive was it was close to the whale sharks and we only had to walk 100 meters for that. Only stay one night.
