The hostel offers a terrace. This place was so great, the staff was so kind, helpful and friendly. Clean, a good location near shops, restaurants and the big Sunday night market. It’s also a spa (very reasonably priced) so if you have the time to squeeze in a massage, it’s very convenient. I got lucky and had the place to myself even though I booked just one bed in a shared dorm room. The bathroom was clean and a small kitchen available (no stove top, just microwave and fridge/freezer). It was perfect for me!

There was always a shower or toilet open so there ratio between people and bathrooms was good. They also provided some fruit and coffee/tea in the common area. The neighborhood was close enough to the Nimman area if you don't mind walking about 15 minutes. Old City was about a 25 minute walk away. Overall great stay!

Hostels. What are they?

Way more than just a cheap place to sleep, hostels are a social way to travel and meet like-minded people. Common areas like shared kitchens or games rooms are great ways to swap tips, tricks and travel stories with backpackers from all over the world.

Hostels have come a long, long way since the first youth hostel opened in 1912. From budget 'crash-pads' to five-star 'poshtels', today, hostels are for everybody, so whether you'd prefer a bed in a shared dorm or your own private room, you'll find most hostels are cheaper than a local hotel and far more fun.
