  • I stayed Jan 9-12 2014. I've not refund my key deposit yet. When I leave backpackers, they said I'll refund my key deposit through credit card. But they didn't any money or message until now. I emailed them but there are no answers. Please pass my comments about key deposit on to the hostel.

  • party hostel, if you want to sleep at night, do not go there! rooms air conditioning did not work, it fell out of the water. it promised to fix, but nothing happened during the whole time when we lived in the room! every night music was so loud that it came through the earplugs! :( the bed springs pushed back. The only good thing was the free food every night! and the short distance to everywere. I do not recommend the place if you like to party
