the room was dirty and very shabby furnished. it has no sink, you can't even properly close the door or the windows. the staff is also unfriendly. on the plus side, it's cheap and there is direct access to the beach! still, we left after only one night and i can not recommend going there!

This hostel really needs to improve on a lot of things. Ambience: Corridor is creepy and gloomy. Poor lighting. Room was musty. Basic amenities: The thing that really annoyed me is the water supply. I've never stayed in a place where I have to complain about water disruption 6 to 7 times during a three days two nights stay. During... More

I've reserved a family room that's facing the beach for two nights through the owner itself. However, arriving there was absolute nightmare. When I introduced myself, they told me that I already checked-in. I was still calm knowing a lot of people do share a same name. Then, I told the receptionist that I'm the different person. Now, the nightmare... More

I've reserved a seaview family room which is located just infront of the beach. However, they denied my booking though I've paid the requested deposit. They told me that my booking was apparently not in their record (well..well..well). They didn't even checked it in their system, and they straightly said my booking was not there. Even worst, they told me... More

I loath to write a bad review but this room was terrible. I wandered in off the street late afternoon and thought as its in the tourist hub with competition, it will be ok. The linen was limp, dirty grey and appeared unwashed. I slept on the bare mattress with my sarong. The manhole in the bath room was open,... More

We had booked a family room via Internet and when we arrived in the middle of the night, we were led to a moldy house that was not located on the beach as supposed but a 5 mins walk from it. The room was not suitable for anyone to accommodate even for free. It was so moldy that it really... More
