We got the double room for $6/night on he upstairs floor. It was spacious and had a very nice bed and linens (maybe the largest I've stayed in at this price point). The balcony outside the room has a great view and cross-breeze making it a great place to lounge. The staff is friendly, food is pretty good (though slow),...

This guesthouse is very good in terms of facilities. The rooms are clean as well as the bathrooms, the balcony offers a nice view on the sunset and the location is good. Unfortunately, most of the staff has little to no command of English which leads to some confusion or discussion here and there. Fact is: breakfast is not included!

We've been travelling as backpackers through Asia for a couple months now and never have we had an experience as bad as this! Do not go here! We arrived and the staff spoke no english which is usually not a problem but they overbooked in the dorm rooms...so we got other rooms and even after repeatedly asking whether it was...

The guesthouse is relatively new. The employés don't sprak English very well, but basic conversations are ok. The owner is there every day during the day (his English is good), but when absent he is always ready to pick up the phone and talk to you. The rooms are very basic and they still have some things to learn regarding...

Stayed here for two nights and it was really nice! The staff is friendly and the rooms are clean and spacious. BreaKfast is good with a nice tomato cheese omelet. The greatest thing is the balcony and the restaurant which have both a view over the river. I enjoyed drinking a beer during happy hour while the sun was going...

We stayed here for 2 nights and found it cheap and very pleasant. The two staff members downstairs were awesome!! They made us feel very welcome and I even played a few games of pool with one of them. The bedrooms were basic and they have a pricey food menu but it's great food. All in all I have read...

thank you very much for your review. but you said, menu pricey... maybe you compared with market or street foods, where you eat in plastic bowl on plastic chairs/table.

The room and bathroom were fine and standard for the price. The pizza is very good here. And included in the room was free breakfast which was a massive bonus. Only problem was they gave us a room which didn't lock and I didn't particularly feel comfortable with it. Apart from that the beer was a little expensive but we...

Nice hostel with good location. I hired a scooter to go around the town and see the Sweetwater dolphins! The ferry for the island is right next door and there is enough places around for food. The hostel itself has pizza's for great value. The staff made my stay extra comfortable they where always there to help.

Friendly staff, spacious room. Previous reviews about bugs are because of the two large balconies with lights on them, attracting bugs at night. Not an issue but the bedroom doors do have quite large gaps so quite a few come in. Shared bathroom is quite gross - spiders and ants everywhere and the shower drain quickly blocks with lots of...
