One of the first great things was that I was picked up from the bus by their tuk tuk driver. As a single female traveller, this was a godsend. Stayed in the mixed dorm which were fine. Mattresses we fairly old and bathroom has a slight damp problem but we have to remember that we are paying 5$ a night here people!
By far the best thing about this place was the hospitality. The Australian owner, Brian, warned us of a few bars in the town mentioning names but due to fatigue I forgot the names. Unfortunately, I went to this bar and got very ill. Brian looked after me like a parent. He was amazing, checking on me and providing me with the necessary guidance and medication. I ended up extending my stay to 5 nights as I felt so rough and TLC was needed.
Yes the Internet is intermittent and the AC isn't particularly strong but again I go back to my earlier point, for 5$, you can't expect much. The place is clean with a great atmosphere, friendly people and only a short walk to the Main Street.
Thank you Brian and the gang for making me feel so welcome!!
