          Overall nice place with a decent place for the money. Beds are alright and has a good location. Definitely where all the action happens in regards to the bar scene. Low season so not too much of a social scene.

          Nice, clean and tidy place. Good place to meet your new fellow backpackers. Great facilities provided. Quiet loud during night time. Best place in Katong. Five minutes walking to famous Patong beach. Easy to get access to anywhere and the night life is so 'live'.
