Reviewed yesterday NEW

We enjoyed our stay here, the room was lovely, plenty of info at reception regarding travel arrangements and tours, the bar/cafe was nice but a bit pricey for the country. The pool was small but clean and adequate.

Most luxurious hostel I have seen. Full hotel amenities including a resort pool. Definitely recommended. I stayed in a private room. Bed was comfortable and had a safe, kettle, bottled water. Others staying in the dorms were equally impressed. Price wise it is among the cheaper options too!

If you look for a quiet place this is not for you. A schoolclass stayed while I was there and a lot of fuss around the pool can be expected. The rooms are good and cool with a good sized bed. The staff is always friendly and helpful

For $5 a night (10-bed dorm) this is a really good choice. The rooms are nice, spacious and clean. Same for the bathroom (8 square meters!) with rainshower! The food in the restaurant is totally overpriced, so better go for a breakfast or other food to the central market (few minutes away).

Hostel ok but staff at counter esp,pav pav, rudely command you as though you are a subordinate. He needs to polish his manners. I was observing how the staff relate to customers and I think they need more training! When you need assistance, the other male staff is more helpful(unfortunately, I can't catch his name).

Stayed 3 nights with my wife in a top floor, en-suite, balcony room over-looking the pool in Mar 17. This hotel is in a quiet street in the central area not far from the river side & night market areas. The friendly staff are always willing to help & speak good English. There's a nice pool & café on site....

“10 bed dorm has the best value for money”

“Not sure where it's quiet. If you have roommates who are noisy it makes no difference.”

“room on the higher floor.”
 of 5 bubbles Rosmedubey, 6 Mar 2017 | Read review
“I have stayed in just about every room type here. This year we had a ground floor one facing the pool (room 16) and it was great-convenient to avoid stairs, have a quick dip in the pool or a beer in the restaurant. Frankly I have never had a bad room there. They now have dorm rooms and I have never stayed there, but at the price offered ($5-$10+/-), they sound like a deal to me, especially having a restaurant and pool there-if you like dorms of course! Not my cup of tea, but a good price in a first class hotel!”
