Liked: Chilled place, and good breakfast/food in general. Nice staff who can organise different trips for you. Few mins walk to the riverside strip although further to other attractions in the city. Comfortable rooms.

Liked: It was very clean, the free breakfast was great and the staff were really nice. The location was also very good, in a backpacker area right next to the night market and river.

Disliked: The kitchen is for staff use only. Also we had to buy a lot of bottled water as there was nowhere to refill bottles but that seems pretty common.

Liked: You get for what you pay, and that's really it at this place. They have good showers, hot water & good water pressure, not always the case around this part of the world.

Disliked: There are definetly dorms which offer you more, better lockers, bathroom and showers closer to your room, less people in the room, etc. But if you only stay here for a night or two it is an option.

Liked: Central location. Good proximity to some good restaurants. Easy to meet people.

Disliked: Hostel has bed bugs several people got eaten alive. The hostel staff clearly know about this as they were taking mattresses out of the rooms and placing them to 'air'?!?!? on the street outside. This isn't acceptable - if they have bed bugs they should deal with it properly and get the rooms fumigated so that other travellers don't succumb to them too. Cleanliness isn't great. The hostel appears clean but you don't have to look to hard to see filth - down the sides of the beds. Corners of the bathrooms etc. The hostel is getting tatty and needs re painting. No real commun area - Sihome much better stay here.
