I was attracted by the price and free motorbike. Unfortunately I hadn't booked in advance and they were full when I arrived - no problem, the owner called a neighbouring guesthouse and arranged for me to stay there until a room became available.
My room (number three) was basic but adequate. These cheaper rooms are very close to each other and suffer from a lack of natural light, and I could hear the people opposite when they were talking quietly. The water pump outside my room was also noisy.
The resident family of dogs and puppies seemed to spend their time scratching their fleas and sleeping on guests' verandah chairs. Distinct smell of wet dog on mine - otherwise very clean.
Restaurant menu was very meaty, no fresh fruit or vegetables available despite signs for fresh fruit salad. Awful tea and coffee - a mug of hot water from one of those water cooler/heaters, and three plastic tubs with cheap instant coffee, sugar and powdered milk.
Very good motorbike though, and if you subtract the cost of rental from the room rate then this place is a real bargain. The owner and staff were genuine, helpful and always had a friendly word for all their guests.

At these prices, this is budget backpackers accommodation and it is fab at being that. Clean rooms, helpful and friendly staff. Good wifi which we used in our room also (I think it was room 10).
I agree that you do need to be able to ride the motorcycle which is included with the cost of the room (not per person). But, we had never ridden one before but managed it slowly and carefully down to Alona Beach once or twice a day. They are semi automatic, helmets included and adequate for short distances. The roads to the beach aren't busy like in the cities and traffic passes wide, other road users were respectful that we were foreigners and clearly not confident! I wouldn't suggest going far unless you are very experienced on motorcycles in other countries.
Loved the accommodation and Alona Beach - eat at Trudi's on the beachfront, on the right. Great food and cheaper than the other beachfront restaurants. Thanks Hope Homes!

First of all, I want to say that it is a value for money place to stay by having a motorbike included with your room. And if you are a budget traveller who can ride a motorbke, you will be happy with the package price.

However, you need to understand that no taxis pass by, no jeepnies pass by and no tricycles pass by.

So, if you can't ride a motorbike, you will be walking and it is a 30 minute walk to the bars and restaurants at Alona Beach. With nothing much in between.

I presume that is the main reason for offering a free motorbike.

As at today, a fan room is P750 per night, with free motorbike and the aircon room is P1300 per night with free mtorbike. 2 helmets are included with each bike. They do not offer insurance for the bike..

The fan room is very basic. It is a room with a double bed and a fan. There is a private bathroom with cold water shower.

I stayed in an aircon room. Number 9. It has a private bathroom with instant hot water. Mini bar fully stocked, aircon, double bed and a single bed and Sattelite TV with about 12 channels. The channels include Star Movies and HBO movies, so you have multiple movies to watch 24/7. The channels also include Cartoon network. Biography channel, Discovery channel, CNN, Australia TV and a German language channel.

There is a small restaurant/bar on site with a pool table. Pool is P20 per game or P150 per hour.

They have a single computer for accessing the internet at P35 per hour but it was not working while I was there.

They have free wifi. It was very poor signal in room 9 and worked reasonably fast in the restaurant.

The place is not the Ritz Hotel but for that price dont expect luxury.
The fan room is simple and mine was clean.
They give free motorbike included in the price, nevertheless the bikes are not the newest in the market but are ok.
To sum up, I think is a good value for backpackers.
