          Good location

          When I am check in, it is alright...but the next morning, I was going down to wait for my friend... while waiting In cafe, I saw cafe providing bread and I ask the staff whether can we have it for breakfast, then the staff said YES, you may.... ( there also stated " for hostel guests only) ... the next day morning, we check out and planing to have our breakfast in the cafe... I remember there is 9 slices of bread providing on table... we ate the bread and bread finished ,thinking the cafe will refill... but after we wait for so long, still never refill then we give signal to the staff, but another staff talking in Thailand language which we don't understand..end up no one come to refill and no one " entertain" us as a hostel guest... I told my friend if hostel is providing breakfast then should have enough bread to supply to guests... else just tell us that hostel don't provide breakfast and shouldn't ever have a board showing stated " only for hostel guest"... we feel very disappointed of how the staffs in cafe treated us especially when we just return our key for checking out.... i have a stay in bangkok hostel before way to hua hin, they provided unlimited bread, biscuits , coffee with happily...I never have this kind of experience where staff treated badly and unfriendly.

          Stayed 2 nights at Chanchala. Helpful staff, spacious dorm room, and comfy beds. Incl breakfast though was just eggs. Atmosphere varied as only met other travellers on first night, so definitely more quiet option. Free water refills, bike rental and beach mats were bonus!

          Small hostel near night market”

          Huahin at night is not very crowded so we chose somewhere near the night market. Chanchala is just 10 mins walk to night market with great seafood stalls. It's also on the same street with Huahin Pran tour - the minivan we took to go back to Bangkok - so it's very convenient to buy tickets <3 Nice staff with free coffee, snack, toast for breakfast, and mats for yoga too <3

          Friendly and knowledgeable staff, good location”

          The staffs are so friendly and knowledgeable, they gave me a lot of useful information and helped me a lot even before I arrived! The hostel is at quiet area but close to night market and beach. They provided simple but enough breakfast. There are few restaurants right in front of the hostel if you are hungry. The facilities might need to fix as the bed next to me and my bed light are broken. However, it is not an issue for me as I am alright to use my own phone light. Definitely recommend this place for the lovely staff! Thank you so much again!

          A lovely hostel at its best location and friendly service”

          Nothing to complain. All meet the standard as it's supposed to be. No party space but it was compensated by a lovely cafe downstair - perfect for sipping coffee, having nice chat or working on computer. The cafe has regular guests who enjoy chatting quietly but is not crowded and the guests will stay just until before noon.

          This was really close to the Hua Hun train station, making it very simple to get on and off. Room and bunks were huge with full privacy curtains and bathroom right inside the air con rooms. Main disappointment was that "breakfast" was only white toast and butter.

          I would've stayed longer here if I had the time, but sadly I only stayed one night. Nevertheless it was very nice. Staff is helpful, clean, 5 min walk from train station, in front of supermarket, and they have nice little cafe with delicious ice cream! I'd be back for sure.
