Liked: We first booked 2 beds in a dorm room. Butter when we arrived the owner gave us a twin, without having to ask for it! He was more than friendly and told us all about the stores and restaurants in this area.

Disliked: Nothing

Liked: It was cheap. ;) and the owner was nice

Disliked: It's really dirty. For almost the kitchen. I was feared of using the stove. I cooked as less as possible. There are renovations so I hope that's the reason and I hope it gets better. I don't want to live there any longer. But it's a working hostel so the people there are staying for long - but just because it's cheap. And they got used to that dirty place. If you want it a bit clean you have to do it on your own. Just the toilet seems to be clean and the shower was big.

Liked: Late check out

Disliked: The place was very messy, tap was leaking, no toilet paper without asking the staff, no staff at property for at least 24 hours without letting us know beforehand. Kitchen tap was almost impossible to use.

Liked: The distance to restaurants such as the delicious Sema Thai cuisine.

Disliked: The rooms were not insulated property so it felt cold and muggy. The bathroom was covered in mold. The kitchen appeared to have not been cleaned for 10 years. The place just needs a lot of repairs that the owners cannot afford with the low price they charge for their guests to stay there.

Liked: Nothing

Disliked: Everything (kitchen, bathroom etc,) was very dirty. The toilets are not working all the time. The owner cleans maybe once a week and there are a lot of people that do not clean after cooking. The oven looks like it was not cleaned for 2 years. It is just a really dirty place and there are a lot people who don't care about anything. Therefore they leave everything dirty.. I know it is really cheap but you really get what you pay for or even less ;(
