Great hostel! Perfect for meeting people. If you're travelling alone you will have no trouble meeting people here. Facilities are ok, but I would say that the walls are paper thin. Expect to here people talking till the early hours of the morning. Probably not advised if you're not going to be black out drunk every night you're there. Staff...

Ok, the hostel does have a swimming pool and it's good value for money, although in Thailand you can stay in better places for the same price. There are no plugs beside the beds, just one plug in the room that does not work properly. The aircon is straight to the bed what made everyone in my room to catch...

This is a great place for solo travellers. The garden/pool was great for mingling and getting to know people. The rooms on the other hand were a bit rough. The shower head was covered in mould. The mattresses had Springs that dug into your back. My blanket didn't look like it had been washed in ages as it was super...

English Phil is one of the best hostel workers I've ever encountered! The hostel is decent. Only complaints are that our room got pretty stuffy and they kept leaving the bathroom plug cover off after cleaning so cockroaches would come in! Breakfast is good too.

The location is great and the communal area is nice, theres a great overall vibe, its very bohemian if you're into it. However the dorm rooms are very mediocre. It has the bare minimum. Should note that towels are not provided and there aren't any mirrors in the room or ensuite. I've been to better hostels at a lower cost.

I moved to Deejai to meet a friend and that was the worst decision ever. I hate to leave a bad review, but upkeep must be maintained in order to get that. Stayed in a 4 bed female dorm. It was mold infested, damp and muggy. The room was filthy and the bathroom was worse. We had cockroaches climbing up...

If you're looking for an awesome vibe and better atmosphere this is the place for you! All the staff are beautiful and so welcoming, the pool is awesome. Rooms are clean! Beds are a tad uncomfy from the springs coming through but if you party hard enough and pass out it won't matter ;) Phil is a legend and is...

Staff and everybody is very friendly. Provide a good service with food, beer and great for helping you out with activities. The rooms though were shocking, 4 bed dorms with the toilet in the same room. No ventilation of any sort, no air con, poor WiFi in the room and we had only ONE socket between 4 of us in...

Very clean sociable place perfect for solo travellers. The pool area is just down the road and is amazing, really clean not like a lot of the pools I've seen in hostels. Good location too would definitely recommend

Stayed in one of the private rooms for a few days. It's in a good location, easy access to city and airport and some lively nightlife. Friendly and helpful owners and staff. My room was clean and tidy, furniture in the room a bit dated but it's a hostel so I wasn't expecting anything glamorous! They do decent and reasonably...
