When we entered our dorm at good dream Hostel there was a group of young germans packing to move out, while loudly complaining how horrible the place was in german. I have to admit, it was not the best form of advertisment. We had been looking arround the island for a low budget place to stay and alltough this one was on the other side of sairee beach we moved all the way there from blue wave guesthouse. It’s located a bit lost in a cluster of newly buildt houses on the very end of this bustling corner of sairee. That way you have peace and quiet at night but you’re only a few steps away from bars and all night open food stands, of course there’s a 7eleven arround the corner.
After staying in good dream hostel I don’t really know why the germans disliked it so much. Ok, somebody threw up in the sink and left it there but that’s hardly the hotels fault. The reception manager was doing a great job, we booked the room a few days in advance and had to pay 500 Baht deposit. My friend lost his recipt but he remembered him right away and he was most helpfull every time we had to deal with him. He really was exeptionally friendly and helpfull.
After 2 nights in the normal dorm we had to move to the so called deluxe dorms. They had Aircon and nice beds with a safe for your valuables. The dorm ceiling was painted to look like a cloudy sky, that really was a nice detail. There were 2 Showers and 2 Bathrooms of decent size and and outdoor gym right infront of our door. There was a nightlamp for reading, unfortunatly the one at my bed was broken and even tough the guy who was suposed to fix it came twice it didn’t work. They did offer me to move beds tough. The rooms were cleaned every day by lovely burmese girls.
