Limited free wifi
Need to go down to the travel agency next door to have access to free Wi-Fi, kind of a nuisance, also the information on the webpage about free airport shuttle pickup is nonsense, no such thing at all! The rooftop Jacuzzi has been covered during my stay and the kitchen was very crowded, although I got a free upgrade to 4 bed dorm, still pretty disappointed.

bad in many aspect except location
could not find their record of my booking from Agoda so they could not deliver the room I requested so they have to provide different from my preference so they said they have to charge extra to that the extra charge room was not tidy up, it was smelly and the room just being left by previous tenant, I can see hairs and god knows what else other micro thing I can't see on the bed drinking water only fill up once a day, once that little water finish than you have to wait next day hot water only provided until 10

Beware - bedbugs
Location, plenty of showers in communal bathrooms
This place has bedbugs - I was lucky enough to not get them but other people staying there were being moved from infested rooms. The location is great but you take your chances with their cleanliness.

Attentive staff, great location.
Attentive staff, great location, decent value for money
We were informed that there was a mix-up with Agoda and hostel was overbooked for the type of rooms. Frontdesk gave us the closest equivalent (double room without shower), and made a small (and much appreciated) gesture of goodwill. Room had window, was clean, just got a bit noisy at night given the partying crowd on street. Overall, good value for money, and would recommend to others.

I won't go again
friendly staff
The private double room is not recommendable. Very small room without a window. The mattress is awful because it's broken in the middle. Therefore, the bed is very uncomfortable. The location is very central which is nice. However it's very lound in the evening/night because there is a bar in 1st floor which you hear to well in the room of the 5th floor until the early morning.

Just cheap...
location, Reception is 24hrs.
Not too bad. i used a 8bed dom. The bed does not have a guard. The shower booth and Toilet are used by female and male together. But, it was cheaper price as far as i remember. So if someone want to save ur budget, choose this backpacker ..
