book to sleep only

cheap, centralized, accessible

Good place to sleep-and-go. Spent 20usd per night, grab a bed, sleep and move on the next morning. As it is a shared room, for security reason, try not to leave your valuable in the room.

didn't really enjoy , no electricity IN ROOM

free wifi, good location and value for money.

if you are looking for a real clean and comfort this hostel isn't a good choice. Rooms are way too different than what you see from the pic. there were much noise after 10:00pm even those there was a notice saying 'No noise after 10:00pm'. the hostel ONLY have 2 unsex shower rooms. The worse thing is there was no electricity in room from 9:00am to 6:00pm (or sometimes 7:00pm, depends on when they switch it on and off) so we couldn't charged any devices . Reception said it is because many people are out at that time so they can save electricity and help the environment which i understand ONLY IF you said it first before I booked my room. if I had known this, I wouldn't have booked this hostel. But the hostel is in good location, have free wifi and value for money. if you are a backpacker, I would recommend this hostel. Otherwise, certainly NOT.

Definitely better places nearby

The only thing we liked about the hotel was it's location
5
We were greeted very poorly by their front desk staff (blonde dreads). He started off by immediately insulting our last minute booking and saying it was our fault he did not have a room available to us. I then informed him not to offer online bookings if he was not able to keep up with the bookings. That ended the conversation. We were placed in a room that was filthy and were not given pillows. After requesting pillows, we still never received them. The fridges smelled terrible and barely kept things cool. The AC in the rooms do not get turned on until 5 pm, so don't expect to cool down from the hot summer sun in the afternoon. We were very dissatisfied with our stay and certainly will not stay here again. You certainly get what you pay for here. We went into another backpackers two doors down and wished we had stayed there just from the friendliness of the staff.
