Location and price
I m in an ensuite room. Room is clean. But it is very hot in summer. The hostel is without lift very difficult to carry heavy back

Great location for a short stay

Friendly staff, price, location
Overall I had a great experience. I was in a double which was spacious for a backpacker room and was clean. The staff were really helpful and great. The bathroom needed a thorough clean but it was ok for a short stay.

Money for location

The building is old, cleanliness is acceptable, staff is okay (not very friendly type but acceptable for the value of money). Overall is within acceptable range of $/service

Aweful room with broken door. is close to the central station, so it's convenient to take train or bus. 2.There were not many ppl using the kitchen, so even the kitchen is very small,We could still cook our own food.
The front desk would not let me check in before 12pm. Just tell me to lock the baggage in lockers( cost $4/day). Finally, I checked in to the room , it was a 4 beds dorm, the door frame was totally broken , the door could not lock at all ! I told the staff if I could change to another room, but they said they couldn't change and there would be someone come to fix it the next day! But that someone NEVER come! It is cold at night, no heater! The room is dirty, so as the bed. though it was the cheapest, but I would still not recommend you to come here! The kitchen is really small ( only about 4 single beds big), the stove place in the corner, so it is very hard to cook if there are more than 2 groups!
