    The lady working here was so welcoming and kind from the moment we arrived to when we left the next day. Room was very large and beautiful, with a comfy bed, great aircon and nice bathroom. Scooters were available to rent, and free bread and bananas were there for breakfast. Really enjoyed my stay here, just wish it had been longer!

    White jail was a quiet chill clean place in a good location close to the ferry pier, diving companies nearby everywhere. I think i got my best sleeps at this hostel, cool temperature in rooms and no windows keeping it nice and dark inside the dorm :)

    Fresh Thai fruit every morning was pretty great. Free tea and coffee was welcomed. Showers and toilets were good. Dorm was lovely - clean and cool - although my bed might have had bed bugs. Staff were super friendly and helpful, arranging scooter rentals, snorkeling and laundry. It was fairly easy to speak to other backpackers, but the main communal spaces ( at the front and back of the hostel building) seemed a bit disparate.

    Good location (close to pier), nice staff, but only security is the door to the dorm room (only if your fellow roommates actually lock the door). The power went out and the AC kept turning off, and also there’s no curtain or anything shielding the light from the hallway into the dorm.

    This hostel is SO nice! And the staff are the nicest staff I have come across on my trip! The rooms and bathrooms are super clean and spacious. Beds really comfy and places to put your big back packs.

    We had a pleasant stay at white jail. The staff were really lovely and friendly and always approachable. The beds are very hard but they do inform you of this. The bathrooms were clean. There are no big lockers for bags so you have to keep them on the floor with everyone else’s but there are small lockers for valuables. Location is pleasant with restaurants nearby and a 2 minute walk from the ferry port.

    The Reggae bar next door was the best part of staying here. The hostel was minimal and I wasn’t really into the open air concept bathrooms. If you’re traveling with people it’s good, not so good for solo travelers.

    Stayed for just a night and then moved on. Nothing really seemed to be happening here - just a clean room with a few people and nothing more. Wouldn’t stay again. Good if you’re a couple doing a diving course and want to just sleep and get up early.
