Before my stay, I read about the domesticity of Mandala Hostel and that's why I chose this place. Well, I wasn't dissapointed there, it realy feels at home. All I forgot was that it also means you kind of "live together" with people who have very different lifestyles.

Before my stay, I read about the domesticity of Mandala Hostel and that's why I chose this place. Well, I wasn't dissapointed there, it realy feels at home. All I forgot was that it also means you kind of "live together" with people who have very different lifestyles. Some go to bed and get up early (like me ), some prefer some nightlife and stay in bed till noon ... Don't get me wrong, I loved my stay there. I only was a bit embarrased to get up so early while everybody (yes, I really believe everybody) was still in bed .... So I tried to be very silent which was difficult because of the beautifull wooden floor that cracked. Then I made coffee, but felt a bit sorry that I couldn't make it for my co-stayers because I assumed they would be in bed for some more hours.... So finally I hurried outside to let them sleep ... Of course, you're on a holliday and not there for cocooning at the Mandala but the place is sooooooo domestic, cosy and relaxed that it makes you wonna !!!!! I felt really at ease, the interior is very pretty and clean, the accomodation very practical, people very friendly. So I definately would do it over again, but than knowing how very very pleasant my stay would be and still foresee some extra nights to include cocooning and socializing !!!!
