Good quality for price, friendly staff
I stayed here for 3 nights and overall I was happy with my stay. Tony the manager/owner was very friendly and knowledgeable. Gave us so much info from where to go/eat/do and how to get around. Highly recommended for any traveler on a budget.

Basic.
Stayed here with family. The rooms were comparatively small for a couple. Bathroom was alright. Staffs were friendly. Loved the neighbourhood. At night there are night markets and food stalls in the vicinity. That's what I loved most about my stay here.

Basic but Okay
This place is absolutely nothing fancy. It has narrow, rabbit's-warren-like corridors and next to nothing in the way of decor. But the AC will keep you cool, it is kept spotlessly clean and the hot water works. It is also conveniently located for wanders in the Old Town. Finally, the staff speak good English and are polite. On the down side, the wi-fi only worked intermittently and really wasn't good enough. Still, this is a good enough option for people who are watching their budget but want good AC and a hot shower. But don't expect any frills.

Kicked out!
I stayed here for 3 nights and then realized I would need to stay one more night. They promised me I would get another day and since I didn't have cash on hand I could pay the next day. The following morning they woke me up and told me they had given the room to someone else, they offered me another more expensive room and said I had to pay full price. When I declined they gave me 15 minutes to pack up and then kicked me out without any compensation. Other than that the room was pretty damn disgusting, with moldy walls and pillows it's pretty apparent cleanliness isn't very high priority. It's not even that cheap. I later stayed at the Georgetown hotel which was all around better for a cheaper price.

Short blackout for 2 nights!
We experienced a few short blackouts within 2 nights. The power tripping problem was quite annoying on both nights. The worst part? Despite sending SMSes to the number stated, no one replied. I believe they might have tried to resolve the problem but no acknowledgement to the SMSes informing them about the blackouts. No courtesy to reply and the customers left wondering if their concerns were heard. I feel that such concerns should be handled better. Location of the hostel is good but there are many hostels with such great locations nearby. The stress of not knowing if you are going to shower in peace(in case of blackout) is simply not worth the risk of staying here.
