The hostel has a nice atmosphere, good food, really comfy and big beds. Free breakfast and good WiFi. Close to the nightlife. All in all a good stay, but expensive for a hostel. Employee Pha was very funny:-)

I honestly didn't know what to expect. But from the moment I got there, the staff was super friendly and attentive. Carried my bags right into my bed. The beds here are huge!

Why not is a nice hostel with very friendly and helpfull staff. Because the dorm was overbooked we got a private room for the same price. Good solution! Only negative thing is that the place is a bit noisy if you wanna have an early rest. Breakfast is included, there is a few things you can choose of. Very good...
