The staff were very honest and friendly, I hired a motorbike from them and didn't use all the fuel up and for no extra charge they let me use it the next day too. Rooms are decent and good location but the bathrooms could do with some better cleaning. Otherwise I highly recommend this place to any backpacker, cheap and...

I had a fantastic 6 nights here, and this was only possible with the impossibly hospitable, friendly and helpful owners - Tony and Oil. They made my friends and I felt welcome right from the check-in, providing much needed information about the city and offering help whenever possible. They assisted with the booking of travel tours to make everything fuss-free...

Of all the places I have been staying during a very long trip, this is the one place which became my home away from home. Simply because of the people who own and run the place, Tony and his wife Oil. It's alway the people who make the place ... and that's the reason this place is so amazing! No...

I stayed for a week. The wifi was working, not so fast but good enough for checking information. The room was not dirty and never being cleaned. The worst thing was that the pillow case and sheet never got changed, even when some checked out. I was shocked when the housekeeper came in with nothing and finished the cleaning in...

Originally booked the place for 3 nights with a travel buddy but arrived one day earlier due to change in schedule but the owner was nice enough to include us into a 6 men room with a couple of other travellers. Arrived on the first day and was greeted warmly by the owner, Tony. One of the distinct cool thing...

“Depends on how many you have actually, if you're alone, sharing rooms with fellow travellers is a great way to make new friends. No doing laundry in this guesthouse Power sockets are a plenty (pretty important in the modern age) + free WIFI”
