    Very nice and chilled hostel”

    Lovely Rosa has been so helpful with everything and has cooked some great meals for me. The space is great and very quiet. I happen to be staying at a time when the hostel is very quiet in terms of visitors so it's suuuper quiet. But still very nice. Great chill out area and nice attention to detail.

    Basic stay in PP”

    Bamboo hostel was ok, but a little pricey for what you get. We got the fan room, and it did get quite warm at night. Breakfast is just some waffles, small but ok. Location is kind of in the middle of nowhere, not really walkable to much. But you can get a trike! Wifi was good. And the staff was helpful

    Good”

    I came in in the low season and was the only one on site when i came in (no staff at all except the security) and i had to say it was a bit creepy as well since i arrived late at night. The reception told me the other morning because staff get off work at 9 PM. It would have been nicer if someone told me i am going to be there all alone late at night lol (but was also grateful to just have a bed to sleep on). Overall experience is ok if i wasn't creeped out on the night alone, could totally imagine this place full of people and lots of fun!
