A basic facilitated with 4 bunk beds per room although we keep this to 3 people in one room as much as possible, each room has a fridge, aircon/heating unit, we are currently refurbishing these units, if a heater or fan is required these can be attained from reception. Reception is manned from 7am - to 6pm unless otherwise stated on the day, the managers are on call 24/7. Some rooms have TV's there is also a communal tv in the kitchen for all to watch and a dvd player, dvd's can be borrowed from reception or you can also join the local library where you can rent dvd's free of charge.
The kitchen is very basic, any poys pans etc which are not already in the kitchen can be attained from receptuin, it is cleaned 3 times a week along with communal areas the rest of the time it is the backpackers responsibility, although the bins are emptied daily, the fridge is deep cleaned by Thuy herself as for the rest of the time inbetween it’s upto yourselves as backpackers to mop up your own spillages and throw away waste. There are a couple of tables and chairs in both kitchens (one upstairs and one downstairs), there are also more tables and chairs on the communal balcony.
There are bathrooms upstairs and downstairs male & female and also one disability bathroom, the showers are the hottest we are legally allowed :)
