Clean, friandly, helpful budget accomodation Jun 09, 2008
Amazingly clean place. The manager is a very friendly and helpful lady. You can ask her a lot of advises and services, she will do her best to provide them and make your stay enjoyable. One of the best hostel where I've ever stayed. The room was a 14 bed dorm with air con and a big window, so it's very clear, I was lucky to be the only one in this huge room.

The boarding school feeling Jun 04, 2008
Although this place has on paper all the things that would make it a great backpackers place (clean rooms, nice AC dorm, internet PC's, coffee and tea all day, living area with DVD player, etc etc) it doesn't realise its potential. Dave, the owner from New Zealand is friendly enough but the day to day business is run by a Chinese woman with some serious control issues. Just to name a few: she religiously checks whether you only hang your towel on your bunk and you'll get sternly reprimanded if you just hang it from the top bunk of the doubledecker bed while you occupy the lower one, even if there's just 1 other person in the 14 bed dorm; she'll say there's no smoking area in the hostel even if the owner says otherwise; for some reason she doesn't trust somebody staying in the living reading at night to turn off the light and will stay up untill you decide to go to bed, making you feel extremely uncomfortable in the process. The pettiness is mind boggling and made me feel like a 12 year old.

If you can deal with the aggravation this could be a place to stay for a night, but if you're looking for relaxation and a homily feeling after days of hard trekking in the jungle, this is not it.
