You get what you paid”
Simple, old, barely maintained dorm. It's still good for a short stay tho. Location wise is great as it is just located next to gaya street.

Bad hospitality”
Bad treatment by one of the staff. I made a request for a key for the locker but she kept on playing with her phone & ignored me. I only got the key after an hour when I requested her again. Besides, the rooms don't have keys. Your room will remain unlocked and could be opened by everyone anytime. Anyway the rooms & toilet were clean.

Comfy hostel, if only they would change bed sheets after each guest”
Quiet and comfy hostel, good bathroom facilities, large kitchen, no breakfast included though. Only thing what I noticed negative- they don't change bedsheets after each guest, checked in there twice within a week and found the same dirty spot I unwillingly left on the bedsheet from my medicine two days ago.

Inconsiderate and badly run hostel”
This place sounds alright from the reviews but once you look underneath you know differently. No security for your belongings. The rooms don't have keys so your room will remain unlocked and will be open to everyone all the time. Then only some of the rooms have lockers. My room didn't have a locker when I asked for one so they gave me a locker in another supposedly empty room. So i locked my stuff away. When i returned that night to grab my phone from the locker it was to find a locked room and no way in. I wasn't able to get to my things till the next morning. Checkout is supposed to be at 12pm but the staff came into my room around 10am and started stripping beds, moving my stuff around, turning everything off, spraying a nasty bug spray, and making it pretty much impossible to get my stuff together. They even took my towel before I was able to shower! If check out is 12am then they shouldn't be pushing people out at 10am. The whole place is HOT, and if you think that the aircon room will help then you are mistaken. Our aircon turned on and blew warm air no matter what temp we put it on. We were given a small fan but that only helped to lower bunks and it was supposed to be an aircon room! Honestly there are much better places to stay in KK. I regret not going back to them and trying out this place instead. I was very unhappy!
