I have been here a couple of years ago, bymyself, when i was travelling and working in Australia, (such an awesome experience), but not at all in this hostel. When you are travelling you want to find something cheap and good at the same time: this was the right place for me; looking good, quite clean comparing to others in...

Had a really horrid experience staying at the hostel in the summer. Our room was dirty, hair covered the floor and bugs were everywhere. What was meant to be a girls dorm, had "boyfriends" staying in it every night. Awoke to a bucket of sick in our room. Most of the people staying here have been there for months, forming...

I really liked the hostel, however, the showers were unbearable, no water pressure and as a result the temperature fluctuated from ice cold to boiling hot with no inbetween, which resulted in me joining a gym just to use their showers. I guess you can't expect much more for $15pn

This hostel is really amazing...I have been here before in 2013, but it was a different owner. Now everything is renovated or almost. Very nice staff and all guests are very symphatic... I will come back

Horrible. And any other word that can mean this. Rob someone and get a few nights in jail. You will enjoy it more. This place is like a Thai prison that is proud to a Thai prison. In fact I d rather stay in a Thai prison. I think rats are invited here to improve the place.

The bathrooms and showers was so moldy in the roof that you felt dirtier after the shower than before. The kitchen had no cups or glasses. There was no oven and the floor was not clean. We stayed there for 5 nights and they didnt vacuum the hallways once = really dirty and dusty floors. The outside sitting area was...

City hostels are usually a little dirty so my expectations weren't that high but this one is unacceptable. The only good thing is the seating area outside - other than that you can find better hostels in the same price range.

Terrible hostel - one of the worst I have ever stayed in. The room I stayed in was dirty and needed a clean - not just a quick once over with a duster like I saw the staff member do. It only had one plug socket for the entire 10 bed dorm and an extension cable had to run across...

Do not book this hostel! My boyfriend and I arrieved here using their free shuttle bus from the airport. The bus got us to the hostel 15 minutes after the reception closed so we could not check in. The reception closes between 12 noon and 4pm. The hostel staff knew what flight we were getting in as I emailed them...
