  • 6.0.Good

    Cheap and centrally located but....

    I booked this hostel for the price and it was passable but for me the bathrooms were pretty gross and too few in number (1 shower/toilet combo per dorm of 10). The beds were super uncomfortable. Everything else in the common area was kept very clean. They also have a cheap breakfast and the staff is super nice and helpful.

    Amazing value, even better staff!

    I thought this place was amazing for the price. Very close to the main walking street and restaurants and stores. Still far enough away to not be loud. Very clean place. The staff was AMAZING!!

  • 2.0.Poor

    1-2 rooms per floor, so you can expect to climb up to 5 floors to get to your room WITHOUT a lift. There was problem with water pump and there was no water overnight. Lot of mosquitos wirh stagnant water out on the street. Charged me for a stain on my bedsheet when I was checking out (which i do not feel i caused and I was in a rush to leave for the airport, so just paid it). Possible scam. Overall not worth it

    Good location, just 2 mins walk from Jungceylon Mall. Like the idea of no shoes, no eating in the room, therefore rooms are very clean and quiet

    Beste Unterkunf für das Geld

    Man kriegt was man bezahlt. Das Preisleistungsverhältniss ist super. Alles gut gelegen. The Beach Banglaroad Grosse Shoppungmalls Hatd Rock Cafe und das Hooters. Sonst noch jede Menge alles zu Fuss zu erlaufen. Bonn von der Reception war besonders toll.Hilfe bei Ausflügen wirde geboten.Bei Fragen wird an der Reception kurz und einfach geholfen und berate. Ich habe für eine geringen Aufpreis ein DZ genommen im Erdgeschoss. Alles Perfekt Zudem bauen Sie jetzt gerade den Eingangsbereich um.Sieht schon mal super aus
