Nice and cheap”
We stayed in a double room for around a week, the bathroom is ok although the toilet does not always flush properly, the bed is fine and its a nice size room, the wifi works in the room most of the time and there are a couple of sockets although not next to the bed, there is a pretty cool bare directly under the hkstel and they have live music every night, we like this but if you do nt like it noisy on a night this place is not for you. We left kk for a few nights and cae bacm and the hostel was happy for us to leave our bags here for a few days. The bar at the hostel has never been open during our stay and its not the most lively/social place. We were happy with our stay and purely for comfort price and location we would definately stay again. (For nice western style breakfast try the nook and woo just 5 minutes walk) also the chilli me place across the road is very nice and very friendly.

Good for a Few Days, No More!”
The bed was comfortable. The location is central. But there is a nightclub next door that plays loud (but good) music into the wee hours of the morning. We could not sleep. WiDi was excellent. Also, my girlfriend complained that the restroom was dirty. The hostel has no charm, but it is entirely functional. In other words, it does all the basics, but it is not a place that will attract you to come back.

Overall it was good. I booked through agoda for their en suite room for a really cheap price. The location is very strategic and local bar just downstairs. The free music from the bar can be heard from my room which sometimes really nice but also noisy when i wanted to sleep a bit early. The toilet sometimes dont have water so make sure u do everything u want while it has.
