I had the most pleasant stay here because they give me the place to relax. The female dormitory is very good too because it is spacious and very comfortable. It's not disturb you at all. No noisy surroundings. I recommended you guys to stay here because this place is chillax zone. Thank you skypod hostel.

This hotel is a backpacker hotel that provides separate rooms accordingly. But all guests will have to share 2 toilets, showers as they are not separated according to genders. They also provide lockers and a towel for each guest. The bed is just comfortable and the place is very clean. The place is also near to town but u have to walk a bit as the it is situated at the last building and at 1st if google the place u might not find it.

Place was nice especially the bed. Sink and food needs improvement. But for the price.. you get what you pay for. Staff was not that friendly as I've read before. They are friendly in chat but in actual they don't really care until you ask a question and they answer just what you asked. Nothing more. Not that warm from what I've read
