  • some rooms have exhaust fans that are placed in upper part of room blowing warm air into the room from hallway, I would rather have it blowing warm air from room out to hallway so cooler air would slip in from door crevices. Other than that, the place was good for its location, clean and comfortable. Friendly staff too!

  • No bath towel provided and water pressure in bath room (3rd floor) is very low. One water heater not functioning. Should be able to provide and overcome these short comings with the price they are charging.

  • We stayed in three hostels in KK and this was absolutely the best! Staff was great, dorms were really clean and there is a huge hangout area. Also the location is really good. No complaining at all!
