  • Had a good stay at Masada. It is a very frequented hostel in KK, so you are very likely to meet people you have met before or meet the people you met here to meet elsewhere. Staff is very nice, facilities including washing machine are all available. Only downside is that some of the rooms don't have windows as it is often the case in Asian hostels.
