Very Good
Jul 07, 2024
Yir is such a lovely host she does a great job of running the hostel. It's a very small hostel and has quite a homely vibe to it. You'll most likely meet people here when you're sat in the kitchen/dining area. The rooms are quite small with not a great deal of personal space, so don't be messy! Lovely view out the back, and they help you with tours, shuttles, recommendations for the area, all for a fair price. Shops just a few minutes walk away.

This is by far one of the best hostel experiences I have even been to. From the free breakfast when I woke up all the way to the comfortable beds that I slept in. The atmosphere in the hostel was really lovely. Everyone was social and very friendly. The staff here kept the hostel spotless all day and they have one of the lowest prices for tours in your. I left my charger there after I left and the staff at the hostel organized to get it back to me when I was kilometers away! Oh and hot showers!

Had a great stay here - met nice people, able to book great tours from the hostel, friendly cat (!!!), and great hospitality and advice from Yir. Pretty much everything is walkable from here; only tiny complaint is that the wifi didn’t work from our room - but the communal space was generally preferred anyway :)
