    AC not good, free water and breakfast Basic backpacker place with walk in rate 25000. Free water is good. Negatives was AC. Didn't really work. Personal - I booked two nights and tried to cancel the second. First they offered 50% return they owner said booking was final. Would of been nice to get 50% since agoda/property says cancelation free up until check-in and they asked if I wanted to pay when checking in or checking out.... If I choose the second option I guess I could of canceled. But again, this is more of my problem and not the hostel.

    A highly unpleasant experience!So I booked this hostel because I thought it had a gym, but their photos online are very misleading and in fact the gym is a separate business, which you have to pay more for. I also found that I was waking up with new bites every morning, I don’t like to through the bedbug word around because I didn’t see one, but a friend in my room did. Finally, the manager of this hostel was very difficult to deal with. She certainly had her favourites. I started of as someone she took a liking too but my friend unfortunately did not, the manager was rude and commanding towards my friend and even called her a b**** on several occasions. We decided to check out earlier than planned and they would not refund us our payment even though we paid in cash and booked online with a free cancellation policy. Overall, this was a bad experience and I would not recommend it as a place to stay.

    AcceptableThis hostel has lots of false advertisement on their page. No free water, wifi doesnt work very well, and AC hardly turns on. Shared kitchen is very dirty. Most showers have cold water only and some doors dont have locks on them. Breakfast is average, just eggs and dry toast. Free coffee/tea all day and location is the only good thing. Tried to get our money back and leave for multiple reasons and the staff flat our refused to give any money back or let me talk to anyone that could help. Our friends stayed at a place just around the corner for the same price with a private room and really nice place with breakfast.

    I never stay here but they charged my credit card I booked the hostel through Agoda, but when I arrived at 7.30 AM they refused to let me check in and told me to comeback at 1PM, I offered to pay for early check in charge but they refused, so i told them I’m sorry but i want to cancel and move to another hostel because i was really tired after 18 hours bus from Chiang Rai. So i moved to another hostel who let me checked in early, but Aham Backpacker charged my credit card for full even though i never stay at their hostel

    Cheap but good value ”

    Sometimes when I find a cheap hostel including breakfast, I am afraid to end up in a weird place. Here I was pleased and surprised for what I got ! Only drawbacks: They recently added two showers, it’s still not enough in my opinion but it’s ok if you wake up early enough. Multiple choices for breakfast, good pancakes ( 8.000kip if not included ). All day coffee and tee. Confortable mattress but the structure of the bunk bed is shaky. 50.000K deposit for a locker and a towel. Possibility to rent a good scooter or bike directly there. Access to the gym next door. Good location, next to the night market and a big convenience store. Some employees did not speak good English so it was complicated sometime but they are friendly and do their best to help you ! They can arrange tuktuk, bus or minivan trips inside/outside the city. A very good value for the price ! Many backpackers stays in the hostel so it’s easy to sociolize. A bit noisy at night but with earplugs it’s fine.

    Laundry service : only washing exclude ironing ?”

    I didn't like their laundry service. Was it just washing, not include ironing ? Overall, i like this hostel. Many menus for breakfast.

    プーシーの丘近くですが静かな環境です。ドミベッドも個人用の照明とミニテーブル、電源があります。雨季ながらダニも出ず快適でした。しかしながら、6人部屋2段ベッドでは他の人のイビキやACノイズがうるさく感じますので、イヤープラグが必須です。 宿のスタッフもフレンドリーですオススメです

    价格低但入住体验很差”

    初到琅勃拉邦,选择了点评尚可的青旅。但一来就有点后悔了我为什么订了两个晚上。首先房间小,入住率很高,洗手间和浴室只有两三个,需要等待。房间有味道不通风,空调是定时定点工作人员来才能打开的。我床上的枕头套两面都已经发霉,有污渍和陈旧血迹,我让前台给我更换一个,最后给我一个没有枕套的枕芯。旅馆提供早餐,离night market只有几分钟路程,第二天早上点了个蔬菜鸡蛋面,结果是一块方便面上面漂着一个蛋...住了两个晚上,搬去了干净舒适的旅馆。
