Liked: Nothing

Disliked: We booked this hostel 2 days in advance and paid the booking fee to reserve 2 beds in a 12 bed dorm. When we arrived at the hostel at 8pm after 7 hours of travelling and paying for a taxi as it was late and dark the man at reception said we have a problem and there is only 1 bed left in each dorm so you will have to be on separate floors! We said we did not want to separate and asked if anyone travelling alone could swap, he said no and walked away. We then had to frantically search for another hostel! Joke

Liked: Free water refills if you have your own bottle and reliable wifi

Disliked: Lack of understanding from the staff, I know English is hard but I felt like they really didn't understand me 90% of the time which can be frustrating. Only one shower to share between 12 people was really hard

Liked: Very friendly staff! They were so nice and welcoming and we got a towel as well - a service not a lot of hostels offer

Disliked: The shower had a bit of mold but that's hard to avoid and compared to other places it was really not that bad

Liked: Ricky the owner is an absolute babe. He's the most helpful hostel owner. He'll happily sort out ferry tickets for guests and organise taxis to go places. He drove 10 miles to check if the Muay Thai fights were on one night and when it was pouring with rain outside one day he gave us his hard drive to watch a movie on and even brought us popcorn. The hostel's a lovely place to stay at. Everyone's really sound and friendly and most nights the hostel all goes out together. We were booked in for 2 nights and ended up staying for 4!

Disliked: Nada

Liked: Staff friendly and helpful, especially Ricky the owner. Great location, only 5 minutes walk to the beach. Comfortable, airconditioned, reasonably priced. Ricky even organized a trip for a group of us to see Muay Thai boxing for free!

Disliked: Only one bathroom between 12 people (although there was a separate bathroom downstairs). Ants in the bathroom (although there were ants everywhere I stayed in Thailand).
