Liked: The facilities in terms of away from living were brilliant. A lot of things to do to tie your day over with.

Disliked: The rooms were tiny and the mattresses may as well of been concrete. I was told I was upgraded to an air con room, however, having seen the other rooms, I believe we were downgraded. Also, I felt dirtier after a shower than before it. The music played was utter garbage. The list could go on.

Liked: staff was really friendly and welcoming. Extremely good value for price. Clean, comfortable beds, everyday cleaning staff came in to sweep up. food was relatively fast, compared to some other locations.

Disliked: wifi would disconnect every 10 to 30min, which would make skype calls a bitch. But it was a fast speed. I was in the downstairs dorm, there was music playing fairly loudly from 11am to 11pm. so was a little hard to sleep at times. So if you need more quiet I would stay in one of the other dorms farther away from the main building. that's about the only downsides.

Liked: There is no way you will get more bang for your buck anywhere else. The staff are always there to help, especially the awesome receptionist Lizzy! The environment is very relaxed and carefree. You can leave your worries at the door because I loved everything about this hostel. The rooms are cleaned regularly and cleaned very well. The owners Jeremy, Dylan, and, Tristan are also always there to make sure your adventures to the beautiful islands of Thailand are beyond kickass.

Disliked: Not a damn thing.
