Thai Allan

04 January 2010 Thai would recommend this property

Liked: This hostel did exactly what it said it would do, we booked a 8 bed dorm and all 8 of us fitted comfortably and the rooms were very clean upon arrival, we were provided with a personal safe to keep all of our belongings in. It was a good distance from anywhere we wanted to go in town and we could enter or exit the hostel at any time as long as we were quiet and respectful to other customers.

Disliked: Thai left no negative feedback.

Liked: Hi, I had booked about a week in advance and I got a really cheap deal for a Friday night.. The place is nice, centrally located, the breakfast sumptuous and the staff really helpful; they let us sit in the hostel for free the next day till late night because it was cold and rainy outside. Just take care to book in advance and you'll love it.

Customer review

01 November 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: They need to address how people get into their dorm rooms: one key for seven people is outrageous! It was unreasonable to expect people trying to sleep in the rooms to get up at all hours to let the others in. Or the alternative, to get the key, go upstairs, unlock and bring the key downstairs and hope someone will let you in, was not feasible. Great location and fairly secure and decent breakfast included, but good for one night stay only.
