This is a small but cozy and beautiful hostel. It's close to markets and the sea. The rooms are clean and reasonable. And the owner is very nice guy. I stayed here for 4 nights and come back again for 2 nights after traveling East Timor.

I stayed in this wonderful place for four days and felt like at home. Edwin, the friendly owner, is a soul of a person and can organise pretty everything for you. The doorm room is with 70 000 excellent value and his banana pancakes for breakfast just terrific. A wonderful place- go here and enjoy!
