So happy to have found this place! One of my favorite hostels! Located just 5 - 10 minutes walk to shopping, ocean boardwalk, nightly fresh markets and fantastic seafood hawker restaurants. Dorm rooms are air-conditioned, clean and comfortable. I really enjoyed having the privacy curtains (feeling of my own personal space). Waking up in the morning to an assortment of delicious breakfast. Fresh coffee throughout the day is a bonus! Most importantly... the Staff! They are the ones that made this place feel like my home away from home. Thank you Faith, Valerie and Judith for your hospitality! Looking forward to coming back again!
Nothing really... You do get what you pay for. At this price point, it's great value for what you're getting in return.
KK is the kind of city that is you’re moving around you need to pass through several times. So, all these times, I have found people that was staying again in this hostel. Nobody considered to check for another one. Breakfast is just amazing for the price. Several choices everyday, changing each day. Pancakes, salads, noodles, rice, cuscus, vegs, eggs, meats, oats ( everyday all day ) , toast ( everyday all day ) , cereals ( everyday all day) , coffee & tea ( everyday all day ) All the staff is really really friendly and they would help you out in everything that you need ! All of them! Location is also really good, 2 minutes walking to the filipino market & fruit market. 15 minutes walking to the ferry for the islands, 10 minutes walking to the buses , mall & big supermarket just in the other side of the road. Water, hot and good pressure. Clean. Best price in the area
Nothing to complain about. Its just the best place to stay in the area
Breakfasts was good
Bathrooms are very dirty and somehow water was leaking from the ceiling
I like the breakfast. I like the staff. I like the other guests. Everyone here loves to smile and greet each others..
Nothing i dont like here..
