This hostel is different! It really feel like home. The common area is where everyone is gathering and the atmosphere is really welcome you to talk to each other. Everything is clean and nice. Even though I was staying in the 16 mixed dorm but had a really good sleep because there was someone who checked if the noise is being too loud. Free breakfast and towel is a plus! Additionally, all the staffs are very nice and really make you feel comfortable staying. I enjoy my staying here. - Than, Thailand

Dorms here are basic but comfortable. An all-female dorm is available, which is nice.

Some guests say that the floors are a little creaky and the beds make some noise, especially in the larger dorm rooms. Others didn't like that the large 16-bed dorm was right off of the common room because it was a little noisy at night. But with an overall rating that is very high from thousands of visitors, it's hard to find many faults here.
