Not really happy”

This review does not want at all to be a bad one, but honestly I did not enjoy too much my experience at this hostel I was the only person in the dormitory, which for lot of people would be great but not for me as I am a solo traveler and I want to meet people The room was nice but no window so really dark Breakfast was super poor, I would not call it a breakfast But the place itself is really lovely, with a little more of attention it could be the best hostel in town :)

Simple furnished but cozy hostel run by authentically kind people. Perfectly located.”

The layout of the hostel is simple, but you'll have everything you need to properly arrange your stuff, which is not always the case for hostels. Rooms and bathroom are clean. Staff is really really nice and genuinely ready to help you, also to your own advantage when booking activities for example. Wifi is quite slow instead. At breakfast they only serve Shan noodles, but if you want something else, they are willing to find an alternative menu for you.

The staff is exceptional !”

This hostel is amazing! I usually don’t write any comments on Agoda but that hostel deserves it. I wanted to do the trekking but I ended up being sick that’s why I stayed 3 nights here. The accommodation gives a very chilled vibe and there are enough possibilities to just sit down and relax. I stayed in the 6 bed dorm which has a lot of space and was private to me for most of the time. The breakfast consists in some coffee, tea, banana and Shan noodles which is totally fine and delicious. The location is perfect you can walk to everything or rent a bicycle at the place. The staff is exceptional! Especially the guy at the reception ( sorry I forgot your name again 😅) helped me figuring out what to do during my stay, organized bus tickets and tours for me, answered any kinds of questions and was just super chilled to talk to, so special thanks to him. I think this is one of the best hostels I ever stayed in and I really felt welcome kinda like home even if it were only 4 days.

A place with a real personality. Very lovely!”

Beautiful and huge wooden building mostly filled with... empty space and nice wooden furniture. This makes the place have a real atmosphere. The 6-beds dorm is actually split into 3 parts with high walls, so it's more like an aggregation of three 2-beds dorms. The staff is very accommodating and helpful. Finally, the location is great: near the main road but not on it, so it's much quieter.
