The price is not right here, it is completely overpriced for what you get. We stayed in the new Garden SiHome Backpackers, just down the road from the original one. Stayed in a 4 bed all female dorm which had the most uncomfortable beds I have slept on, they are similar to concrete.
The room was not the cleanest, and neither was the rest of the place. The shared bathroom (for the entire floor) was pretty well disgusting everyday. The shower had decent pressure and had hot water so that was okay, but the crack in the door made showering a bit dodgy. No toilet paper here in the toilets, so bring your own for sure!!
Since it is all quite open, there are tons of mosquitoes so make sure you spray yourself every night before bed or whenever you are at the hostel.
The receptionist/owner, was an awesome Aussie who helped us with everything we needed, we asked about 100 questions and resolved every one for us! He is awesome, Phil was his name I believe, go to him if you need anything!
This place gives free breakfast, a definite bonus, pancakes, french toast, eggs, etc. all pretty delicious.
The location is okay, you can walk to most food spots, the main strip along the water and the night market within 10-15 min.
Overall, it is a bit pricey considering other places we have gotten in and around SE Asia.
