    Very cute and clean backpacker. Staff were friendly and helpful. Location is good with respect to market. Sits right on the lake, absolutely beautiful view. A good place for solo travelers or small groups backpacking.

    This place has great potential but compared to other hostels, particularly other BBH places its not quite as good value for money. All in all it was a pretty fair price for the area and the location is excellent. Easy to walk everywhere in town...More
