overall it was okay. i had difficulty getting to the hostel. i was lied to that i would get a complimentary shuttle drop off but it was hard redeeming it. also some of the staff members were very rude and abrasive. they did not serve customers in the order of the queue and showed preferential treatment to certain people instead of being courteous to everyone. they were always high pressure sales tactics to sell packages instead of letting customers choose

I have arrived earlier in the morning )9 am, normally the hostel ask to check in at 1pm but they are very helful to get me check in while i was too tired after the long flight. I will recommend to my friends. Phi Yen

One good thing about this place is the proximity to the airport! The airport shuttle did not pick me up, and an hour later after the staff graciously dropped me off at the airport gate, I still made it to my flight! It also helped that is was very early in the morning. Too far from the city though but they did have free hourly shuttle to the night market which was a deal! Tours pick you up from the hotel too. Room a bit stuffy, breakfast was just toast and coffee and other facilities were okay. Comparing to the other expensive hotels downtown, I suppose you could say this is value for your money?
