There are better hostels in Samet!”

While this hostel is conveniently located, several things will stop me from ever staying there again. Firstly, we tried to get in to 2 different places that said Runa Runa hostel and guesthouse in the window, before being told we had to check in at a separate office first. The hostel is tiny. We stayed in the 4 bed dorm. It was ok, sturdy metal bunk beds meant you couldn't really hear or feel the person in the top bunk moving around. But the major problem (which I couldn't quite believe) was that there was ONE bathroom that included one shower and one toilet for the whole floor to share. Not really just the whole floor though, as people staying upstairs had the same problem and kept coming down to use ours. Meaning that if you needed the toilet while someone was showering, you had a loooong wait. In addition, my friend only got a towel as a blanket, and they refused to replace it or give us spares despite there being several locked away in the common room cabinet.

Great experience! The hostel is clean and I was so comfortable. I love the free ginger tea! ”

The place was so clean, quiet, convenient, and so accessible to the beach. I’d love to stay there again or recommend it to anyone. I so love that they have free drinks like water, coffee, ginger tea, and lipton tea and also the cup cakes were good too. I like the place so much. Thanks Runa Runa!
