Amazing staff - the lady on reception was so helpful. Arranged a brilliant boat trip, sorted ferry tickets and help to take bags to the pier. Gave us a map and pointed out good beach etc.
Clean room - rooms cleaned twice during our 4 day stay with fresh towels
Location - 10 min walk from party area. Not much noise at night. Right opposite nice restaurant for breakfast and 2 mins from shop.
Cheap - for Koh Phi Phi standards anyway.
Mosquito central - I think this area is particularly bad for mozzies due to stagnant water. All staff working this area have zappers. We sprayed deet under the door and all over us every day but still got eaten alive. Woke up to a massive spider in the bathroom one morning, which was removed by the staff quickly. Not the hostels fault about the creatures but location plays a part here.
Water quality - the water was a cloudy brown colour and the bathroom smelled of raw sewage. When I questioned this I was told that the water comes from a very old well system. For fear that it was actually sewage leaking into the water system, I showered elsewhere all week which was a pain. My friend didn't, and got sick. In other places on the island that we went to, the water was clear, so not sure if the septic tank needed changing or something because it's not an island problem (had a lovely clean shower at a pool I had paid to use the facilities for down in Tonsai) no restaurants I visited had brown running water either. Definitely isolated to
Cocos, or that part of the island at least.
On balance probably wouldn't stay again unless they sorted the water issue (deal breaker). Otherwise, really really good value for money.
