Nice stay at Elephant trial
All in all very nice. You must see it in the light of being a packpackers. Don't expect a 5 star hotel. Everything was very nice and comfortable. Staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms clean. Small things wrong, e.g. basin tap was no good. Our one LED bulb got 'replaced' with a cheap copy. Out room was very noisy at times due to thin ceiling above us. We will make use of them again.

Best place in Kasane
Very fair to guests what I really appreciate. The owners responded immediately to any of my questions and the employees are also very nice and helpful. Both thumbs up - I felt safe and very welcome all time. Thanks for that great experience

Não me hospedaria novamente
O local é ótimo, super bacana, limpo, organizado. O quarto é espaçoso, limpo, super confortável... A equipe é agradável, todos são muito bacanas. Porém o hostel é longe de tudo, não absolutamente nada perto, nada mesmo, fica no ermo. Se tiver com fome, come no hostel ou não come, e os preços no hostel não são os melhores. Os passeios do hostel são bons, porém fiz o game drive de 6 horas e achei muito caro pelo que oferecem, vi outras agências prestando um serviço melhor, especialmente no café da manhã, o motorista não é tão amigável e absolutamente todos os outros passageiros das outras agências viram leões, menos nós. Achei péssimo, realmente não faria novamente com eles. Recomendo procurarem outra agência para fazerem os passeios por lá e se quiserem ficar na região mais central de Kasane, procurar outro lugar. Sinceramente que acho que não ficaria aqui novamente, devido as dificuldades de acesso e coisas próximas ao local.

Good 6.0
O melhor são os staffs, todos felizes e sorridentes. Não gostei da localização porque não é permitido sair sozinho do local por ser perigoso. Fica muito isolado. Não gostei porque reservei um game drive com bastante antecedência e confirmado duas semanas antes e na verdade não houve reserva. Por pouco não consegui fazer o game drive. Cama do dormitório bastante desconfortável.
