A very good cheap and centrally located place!

The location has to be the best thing, the price and the facilities make up the other two best things :)
It was comfortable, the staff was friendly and the atmosphere chilled out. If you are a budget traveler and don't mind sharing a room with 4 other people then this is highly recommended. My fellow roomies turned out to be pretty chilled out too. So was good fun :)

I think YHA Railway Square is in a good location where it's just beside the train station. Hence, making the trip from the airport was easy. Upon arrival, I was greeted warmly by the staff at the reception. They were very helpful and nice. I choose to stay in a 8-bed dorm because I wanted to meet more people. Unfortunately they were not as friendly as I hope them to be. I guess that's okay. The room was vacuumed on alternate days. Toilets were free from vandals and it is relatively comfortable. However, it would help if some of the toilet cubicles had bidet. I think that's about it from me. Thank you YHA Railway Square!

Comfy and Clean

Location, staff, price
Unfortunately due to the lateness of my arrival I ended up in a top bunk. This is the only problem I had and was nobody's fault. The room was just what I needed - somewhere to sleep for the nights.
