Budget and cheap hostel for backpackers or climbers. Very friendly and helpful e.g. arranging transport to KK park for climbing with reasonable price.

Great place to stay had free pickup from airport. Rooms were new and spotless, owner was very helpful. Loads of information and tours to go on. Location lets it down slightly about as its about 15-20 minutes walk from the town centre near a load of garages.

A great new place in KK. Everything is new and well laid out. The common areas are comfortable and relaxing. Hot showers are a blessing.

Unique Quality: Malcolm was as helpful as any hostel manager I have ever come across. From a friendly pick up at the airport to the occasional free lift down town - this guy was always looking after the guests and their welfare.
