  • For a budget backpackers, you actually get a good amount. the rooms are clean and comfortable, the sowers are good. brekkie is basic, but still its included so the value for money here is good. its not a big social, party hostel...nowhere to my knowledge is in KK, but having looked at others in the town..theyre nothng special so why pay upwards of $10 in other places when you can stay here cheap and get just a good stay.
