I had a great time here! Super social hostel. They offer loads of tours, which is a great way to meet people. Loved the atmosphere. The rooms were clean and the showers were nice and hot. Loved the fact that they could arrange everything for you (busses, tours, etc). Staff were super friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend!

Loved this hostel! Such a great place to meet people, the rooftop was the highlight for me - decorated really well and was a great area to socialize. The beds were comfy and the showers were nice and hot. The breakfasts were awesome too! The staff were always super friendly and helpful. The location is good too, close to Chinatown and there are plenty of other street food stalls nearby. Will definitely come back!

The breakfast was so sad. White bread, no toaster, a boiled egg and a piece of fruit. The chai was really really bad. The room itself was ok. Curtains in the beds were nice and the shower was hot. The staff members I spoke with didn’t really speak English very well so it was hard to communicate. One of the guys on the front desk was asleep when I went to check out. Kitchen upstairs was always really dirty when I tried to use it. I tried cleaning my dishes but there was never any soap.

Great hostel! The common area was the highlight, great place to meet people! The showers were nice and hot, they have lockers in the rooms, clean bathrooms, comfy beds. They have lots of tips for where to go and what to do which is awesome. Staff were super friendly too. Would definitely recommend!

The hostel itself was great value for money. Clean bedrooms and bathrooms. The location was amazing - right opposite the fort! However and unfortunately, when I was there, there were hardly any others in the hostel so I had to move. The restaurant was good but completely empty so it made my time there less memorable. That being said, had there been people there I would’ve had a great stay. Would recommend.

Such a good place!! J and his family are so lovely! Would highly recommend!! I had such an great time here, they are always there to help and very friendly. The breakfasts are amazing and the showers are hot! You do have to walk up a few stairs to get there and google maps doesn’t exactly point you in the right direction, but don’t let that put you off. Once you get there you will have a great time.

Had an amazing time here!! Wanted to stay longer! The beds are super comfy, the food is really good and the atmosphere was above all the best. Loved the location, bit farther away from the main piers but that’s what made it so nice. You wake up on the beach, it’s absolutely gorgeous! Staff were very friendly and helpful, would highly recommend this place!

Definitely a party hostel, but that’s what I came here for. The staff were super friendly and made you feel right at home. Great place if you’re a solo traveller looking to meet people. Rooms were awesome! Super clean and nice and air conditioned. The food from the bar upstairs was a little pricey but other than that I had an awesome stay here.

Hi, thanks for choosing Funky Flashpacker! Yes, we are a party hostel and we throw parties every day! We also made our hostel super sociable so even solo-travellers can enjoy their stay with us. It's a shame that you thought our prices were a little pricey because we do value high quality and hygiene in our kitchen (maybe a little more than the cheaper priced places outside!) Thanks again, Vincent, GM.

Geeat hostel! The free breakfast in the morning is the best breakfast I’ve had in Southeast Asia yet! The rooms were ok, bathrooms were great as the shower had good water pressure and was hot, but there wasn’t much privacy. Apart from that, the staff are amazing and I had a great stay. Would definitely recommend.

Good place to meet people. Everyone is there to do the Ha Giang loop so it was easy to join a group. The beds were good and bathrooms ok - hot water. Not juch to do around the hostel, or in the town itself so don’t bother looking for food. Get the family dinner at the hostel instead, it was amazing!

Great hostel. Beds are comfy, bathrooms are clean and there’s a/c in the rooms. I did a free walking tour one morning which was great. The hostel can book a lot for you at the front desk which is awesome. Good location and friendly staff. Common room is a little unappealing, but apart from that it’s good value for money.

The whole reception are was under construction. The front door, that looked like a garage door, was half closed when I tried to get back in late at night and had to duck under in. No common room or anywhere to sit other than your room. Couldn’t chill out in the room though because it smelled so damp and so strongly of mould. I had to put something over my face to breathe at night it was really foul. Showers were decent - hot water. Otherwise great location, pleasant staff and good breakfast.

It was good for one night. Bathrooms were clean an showers were warm. Beds were comfy and lockers were right next your bed which was a plus. Entertainment room wasn’t very appealing, wouldn’t hang out in there for long. Location was great, right next to a really cool jazz bar that’s worth checking out.

Great hostel, would definitely recommend! The atmosphere was great, we met a lot of people. The hostel booked an elephabt sanctuary and a cooking class for us which was great. The showers were good and warm. The beds were comfy and have lockers in the room. The only downside was the wifi. It never worked which was a pain.

Air conditioning was good, location was good. However, the pillows on the beds were extremely uncomfortable and the beds are very close to each other which was a bit weird. The bathrooms were quite cramped. The toilets were always occupied in the morning with people showering, would be nice if there was a seperate area with just toilets. Apart from that, the Born Free cafe across the street is nice, they do great curries!

Nice hostel, clean bathrooms and rooms. Comfy beds. Elf was really nice and accommodating. The dorm room door was really squeaky as were the beds when people moved so I had a hard time getting to sleep. There’s no real common room, just a tiny area with a tv so it’s a bit hard to meet other travellers as there’s nowhere to really hang out. Location is nowhere near Khao San Road which makes it nice and peaceful. Good if you want to be away from the touristy areas.

Only stayed two nights, however I was in the room at the end which was right near the traffic so couldn’t sleep very well. Would also be nice to have an a/c control in each room as I felt bad having to ask the front desk a few times to turn it up and down. Apart from that, I had a good stay. It’s a very small hostel but perfect for a couple nights stay. It’s really close to Jalan Alor which has amazing street food so that was a plus! The showers are also amazing!

I had an amazing time at Bhumi! Loved the staff, they were so friendly and always willing to help. Very informative as well. The beds were clean and comfy. Bathrooms were regularly cleaned, they have their own laundry, and even have hot showers which is a major plus! Met lots of people at this hostel, the atmosphere was great - very casual and relaxed, but social at the same time. Loved how eco-friendly it was too (recycling, compost and their own garden!) Would definitely recommend!

We chose this hostel to stay in for one night in Brighton and it was good or that. Wouldn't want to stay longer though. Showers were pretty bad, I tried to be as fast as possible to get out. Our door could be pushed open even if we closed it, so security wise - not great. Breakfast included was alright, nothing special. Location was great! Good for one night.
