Liked: Close to old pukhet town. Some of the staff were friendly. Others didn't care. Accidentally booked for a night later, and they accommodated since they had many empty beds.

Disliked: No air conditioning for the room. So hot couldn't breathe. They turn the one ac on for the whole floor at 10pm and turn it off at 7am. No real privacy in the rooms. Very tiny rooms. No where to put your stuff. It's not entirely closed off, so you can hear noise from other rooms and from people in the hall.No soap for the washroom sink. One of the two showers didn't work. Shoes not allowed inside the hostel but the floor of the toilets were dirty. No towels. Not many restaurants around. Wouldn't stay again.

Liked: Overall we really enjoyed this hostel. It was overall very nice despite being wonderfully inexpensive.

Disliked: There was a strange rule of no drinks in the common room. The signs didn't elaborate, but we decided it must mean alcoholic drinks as their is a bar in the main room/entry. We never found out exactly what it meant. Since there is no eating/drinking (water excluded) allowed in the rooms (this is to prevent insects from making their homes inside the building so it's completely understandable) and this rule made us a little uncomfortable eating in the common room.It could also be rather noisy in the building. The building is quite open, as in there aren't simply multiple floors but part of the floors are open to the ground floor. It looks very cool in my opinion, but noise escapes easily. Music is blasted from the common room at a volume higher than it needs to be. It was difficult to talk over so we often went to our room to talk, missing the opportunity to socialize with others. Our room was at the far end of the second level and completely shut off so it wasn't too loud for us (room with 10 beds and air conditioning). Walls of other rooms on the level did not reach the ceiling so I imagine they were quite loud.
