Brownstone is a boutique hostel a 15 walk from the train station and historic sights. It has retro as well as cozy swing vibes. Sadly, it didn’t seem very social the night I was there. The rooms and bathrooms are its strengths. Very tall capsules with nice light and outlet and large lockers that come with padlocks. Showers are spacious and have hooks, and there is space for hanging and drying clothes on the roof. Staff were ok and breakfast was minimal (cereal and milk) with tea or coffee.

Atmosphere is great, hosts are amazing! The A/C worked beautifully and even without it the dorm room was still a cool temperature. It is within walking distance to food and some attractions (you will need a car or use grab to get to some of the further temples). We were lucky that one of the days we went the host was offering a free trip for cave exploration that was super cool
