28 August 2015

Liked: For anyone who is interested in meeting other travelers through partying, this is a great place. Sadly, we were looking for the former without the latter. We appreciated efforts by management to provide quality employment and benefits to staff - which is often lacking in the tourism industry.

Disliked: Our private room door could be opened without a key. The staff were very friendly, but quite unresponsive to any requests (e.g., ordering at the restaurant or asking for help with printing at the front desk) and sometimes unprofessional (e.g., falling down while laughing and asking a guest to pick them up). It's great to hire people that enhance the vibe of a place, but not at the expense of plain old good service.

Liked: Nice neighbourhood, maybe not so central but close to the places we were interested in. As a single traveler a good place to meet new people.

Disliked: The food at the restaurant is a bit overpriced. The staff at the reception could have been nicer, while we were asking for directions. Just arrange everything by yourself, it will be faster, more easy and cheaper.

Liked: The hostel was a great place to meet other travelers which is nice when one is traveling solo. It was also very clean. Once the bar closes at 12 mn, it becomes very quiet and you could get a good sleep.

Disliked: Not much really, though one should be aware that this is a very party hostel.

Liked: Room was great and as advertised, and the bar in the evenings is a rowdy, great time. Restaurant food was really delicious. Had a bunch of resources for traveling such as bike/scooter rentals, visa processing, travel booking, etc.

Disliked: No common area that wasn't a bar/restaurant where you had to purchase something.

Liked: Staff were really nice, food was good.

Disliked: Beds were terribly uncomfortable. There was also no communal area where you can just sit and hangout.. there was only the bar and the restaurant--making a very anti-social environment for people who dont want to spend money just to sit somewhere... Also the layout of the hostel was not good. it is separated into two completely separate buildings. Also int he dorm is was staying in (8 mixed dorm), the staff just walked through it all the time, and sat on the beds even though there were people sleeping in the room...

Liked: The staffs were really friendly and helpful. The beds were huge and there socket to each bed. The best part was the sunset bar, the bartenders were great.

Disliked: It could get a little noisy a night because of the location of the bar but honestly nobody cares. It's a great place to be.

Liked: All the events organised (bar crawl, BBQ), the bar, staff were really helpful and nice. Tuk Tuks outside to use when needed.

Disliked: Just needs a pool! But you can use the pools down the road and get a free drink! Also scanner wasn't working when I was there, which was annoying but not the worst thing.

Liked: The hostel is great! The bar in the rooftop and restaurant are great for meeting people. The rooms are clean, beds confortable and the lockers big enough for a backpack. The staff is very nice and supportive. Enjoy the art on the walls and decoration of the place, it sets a cool mode for your staying!

Disliked: For the city tours, try to find yourself a tuk-tuk, the hostek charges more for the offered tour than the normal prices. Breakfast is not included and for the price they charged it should.

Liked: The price and the atmosphere was good, as were the staff and facilities. The hostel bar was good to meet people and then move to the nearby bar street. It is not in the centre but about 30min walk, and it has its own little area of bars and restaurants.

Disliked: The dorm was a bit old but was clean.
