Bed bugs ”
Pro : location, staff (was ok - very helpful) but it nice i got the room for myself as I was the only person staying in 8 ppl dorm for the nights. Cons: no aircon, huge bed bugs problem, toilet not working ( small water, owner trying to save water?). Lobby dont sell drinks ( fridge broken). Not offered breakfast. Need renovation and pest control!!!! Bed bugs included.

Awful”
The staff is rude arrogant and ignorant. They are engrossed in their mobile phones at all times even while talking with the guest. Major language problem as they don't speak English, except when there's money involved. I was bitten by bugs, showed them the bed bugs and they said change the bed. The next one also had it and on showing that rather than finding a solution the boy just gave a very bad look and. walked away. Even upon calling him he just kept walking and went to bed. I'm three beds down and not able to find comfort anywhere. I booked a 8 bed dorm but anyone who comes in gets a bunk in a 16 bunk room. there are 3 other rooms with no one on them. only one room on the 2nd floor is operational. there's only eggs and bread for breakfast, no coffee, no other options. The boys sleep during the day at the lobby, and of no real help whatsoever. Not at all recommended, not even if they pay you to. stay off

Cheap and central location”
This is not the most comfy place ever but the price is really interesting (less than 4€, including bread with eggs for the breakfast), in the center, so it’s a very good value for money

Ok for the price ”
This place is alright for the price! But don’t expect very much. I didn’t like the atmosphere very much in this place, beds were rock hard and the staff hardly spoke any English. They tried to get me to pay for my room again when I had already paid online.

Acceptable”
The rooms were not clean, they smelled and all the mattresses in the hostel were full of bedbugs. When we tried to get our money back, because we didn't sleep there in the end, the manager was very unprofessional and rude. He didn't even give us all of the money back.

Staff and hostel itself are horrible ”
The staff was too busy doing their own things that are clearly not related to work. They just kept on talking despite that I've been standing infront of them to check in. When I was finally able to checkin, the bed was as hard as a rock and the toilet omg the toilet was soo dirty! The bin was over flowing with toilet paper, I thought oh maybe they will clean it later. 3 hours later, the toilet was still as dirty as I first saw it and not cleaned. Take note the the cleaning folks already changed the sheets, why did they not clean the toilet too? I checked in at 12noon and checked out at 1pm the same day. I couldn't stand staying in the place, the guy was soo shocked that I am already checking out when I just paid. Was soo tempted to say "because this place is sh*tty!" Worst hostel I've ever stayed at in SEA! Only good thing is the location.

breakfast toast doesnt even come with butter”
location only
breakfast comes in 2 toasts with 2 eggs, and a cup of coffee or tea. I asked for at least butter but it costs 3000kip (USD40) so I was dissappointed. no slippers inside the whole hostel starting from the lobby. it's an okay rule if the place is at least clean right? toilet? dirty. stairs? dirty. i couldn't think of a nice thing about this place. price is the same with all the other hostels with a standard of 40,000kip (USD5) for walk ins so we changed to a more cleaner hostel for the next 3 days. suggestion would be book the next days stay through agoda (sometimes even a dollar less is helpful!) after you've actually seen the hostel on your first night

Ripped me off”
Staff carried my heavy bag up the stairs for me, location is good, price is decent
Stay would've been excellent. However I asked as soon as I arrived about getting to the airport the following day and they charged be 85000 kip. I later seen a big sign on the wall that said 24hr airport transportation $50000 kip. So I'm annoyed that they ripped me off. And maybe because I was a female travelling alone it made me an easy target. Other than that my stay pleasant enough.

Best backpackers I have stayed at”
free breakfast, tv, aircon and fan
We got the big private room with bathroom. Room had a double and a single bed in it. Aircon worked as long as it wasnt too hot outside. The main fellow that runs it was helpful, bit busy but nice. You can also book travel to elsewhere from here With no hassle. Location was close to the night markets. Didnt like the fact that other guests could smoke inside while the common area was closed off for the aircon. Smoking inside while the aircon is on is just rude!!! Go outside!! Breakfast was good, fried or scrambled eggs with toast or toast with jam and fruit. And a tea/coffee. Bed was a bit too soft for us. And having to dry the toilet seat after having a shower was annoying. Alot of other places have the rounded edge toilet seat so it isnt an issue. Noise was ok considering we were above the common area. Most people turn in or go out from 11pm. We stayed here for 5 nights and would probably stay here again.
