          Room cleanliness, friendly staff, fridge to store water

          The room was really clean. The bed sheets were really clean! The room was not as stuffy and warm as I had initially expected, it was quite cool in the night. The hostel owner was really friendly and so is his staff. There were reference materials and suggestive places to visit which is really cool as there are waterfall around Hat Yai! The location was not hard to find as it is just right in front of the train station by 2 roads and a little further to the right. There are a lot of mosquitoes in Hat Yai, luckily there were mosquito nets, so its fine. They are doing it right!

          I loved staying at Hatyai Backpackers Hostel. As long as Wan, Nadia, and Naan are here, I'll always stay here. Bed was firm - perfect for me. Fan in room - I dont like sleeping with air con. Breakfast - Toast, jelly/jam, and fruits. Bathroom - western but please throw toilet paper in bin. Shower - one has heater the other doesn't. Dishes - clean up after yourself. Cooking - please do so, use microwave, small toaster oven, or electric pan. Location - close to train station and local night market. Walk a bit further to other markets or walk to clock tower to catch a local bus/cab thing to your destination. Staff - absolutely amazing! knowledgeable, helpful, kind, and down to earth!

          Clean room”

          Kind staff, quiet, clean.

          I've stayed there for take a train. It's close to train station, but problem was train ticket fare. It was much more expensive than I saw online. Hatyai-penang(butterworth) was 332baht, so I thought bcuz of I am foriener. So hostel staff helped me, he was searching fare by thai language, and call them. He was really kind, helpful. Room was quite hot but there are fans, so it was ok, and clean. I was the only guest at that time, I hope more travellers go there. 직원분이 정말 친절해서 좋았다. 방은 좀 더웠지만 선풍기가 여러개 있어서 한대를 아예 전용으로 쓰니 시원했음. 가격대비 꽤 깨끗하고 조용해서 좋았다. 손님이 나밖에 없어서 돈 어떻게 버나 걱정이 되었음 ㅠㅠ 여행자들이 많이 갔음 하지만 핫야이는 그닥 볼거 없는 도시라.. 나처럼 기차타느라 삽질할 사람들이나 갈 듯하다. 끄라비에서 페낭까지 600밧이면 버스로 가는데, 웹에서 핫야이-페낭3등석이 42밧이길래 기차역 갔더니 2등석 에어컨 티켓만 판다고 332밧이란다. (참고로 에어컨은 개뿔 엄청 약한 칸이라 틀어졌는지 인식도 못하고 나중엔 선풍기만 틀어서 더워죽는줄) 호스텔 묵는 비용에 시간까지 날리고나니 참으로 허무했으나 직원이 너무 친절하고 로빈슨 앞 노점에 쏨땀 파는 아주머니도 너무 친절해서 감동~

          Great place to stay as a stop over to other places”

          Room and bed were clean and the staff was very helpful.

          Det was very nice to me and helpful. We had nice chats about Hat Yai, Thailand and Europe. The place was always clean and quiet. If I had to go back to Hat Yai, I would definitely stay there again.

          There’s nothing to do”

          I stayed for one night only because my flight to bangkok was in the next day. The location is only 500m from the Hat Yai Railway Station. They provided all day complimentary coffee and tea but I was not interested at all. The breakfast was so standard bread/toast with jam or butter as well as banana. The room was nice but it was quite hot because there was no air conditioner at all but they provided lots of fan.

          One of the most welcoming hostels I've ever stayed after 4 years of traveling”

          From the first moment on, I felt so welcome in this hostel. It is basic and not big, but has a cozy common room, even a small kitchen where you can cook your own food, and light-flooded dorms with clean and comfortable beds. The owner was super-friendy, we had a long and interesting conversation somewhen late at night, she was always open for questions and most helpful. Location is good as well! Couldn't recommend it more :)
