      We booked bunk bed room with toilet. The room is small, so if you having big luggage, I do not recommend you to take this room. Everything else were good. Toilet inside the room is clean and the staff are friendly. But, this hostel do not have lift. So pack light if you wanna stay here. It is very near to Ximending. 5mins walk. 😄

      Located just off the main street into ximen. Staff were excellent, perfect English and very helpful. The rooms have a large flat screen tv with western movies and news channels and the bathrooms have great showers. There's even a shared lounge area below the reception with tv and free coffee. Definitely recommend

      About 10 minutes walk from Ximen MRT station Exit 6. Slightly difficult to locate, is inside an alley. Got free room upgrade from twin bunk to quad bunk even though there were only 2 of us. The room is small but satisfactory. Shampoo and shower gels were provided in private bathroom wall mounted dispenser form. Staffs are helpful.

      Not bad”
      This is my first time staying at a backpacker hostel, the room is small but decent. Only thing to note is that the location is quite some distance away from ximen station (about 10-15mins walk) ps. There was no wifi on my first day of stay and even when they did the signal was very weak (i was staying on the 3rd floor), perhaps installing a router on every other floors will be nice? pps. No towel provided, though you could bought it for a small fee from the host.

      Worth to stay ”
      Overall, it's a good experience to stay at this hostel. It's slightly farer from the railway station or XiMen Ding but a walkable 5 minutes distance. The dormitory room for 4 persons are quiet small. It may be difficult for those who carry big luggage with them. Not sure if the other rooms the same. I would recommend you to stay if you have mo better choice. This is still not bad.

      room was ok, clean. but they dont allow you to eat/drink inside. aircon controller is only one per floor so you have to go out to use it. we asked to clean the room and they removed the trash in bathroom and wiped the floor, but didnt fix the bed. only bad part is we stayed at 6F so we had to climb 5 floors all the time which was tiring, so not for elderly, children, and those with huge luggage

      Great location, friendly staff”
      Walking distance to the shopping street. Staffs are friendly and helpful. Check in procedure is clear. The structure of the bed (separate plugs, light, curtain) is great. I would love this place if I traveled solo. The ventilation in the room is not so good. The room does not smell pleasant upon check in. However it was ok after we sprayed some perfume. The cleanliness of the bed could be improved as we got bed bug bites on our legs after sleeping on the bed.

      Super value”
      I think I got a bed here cheaper because it was low season so it was only me and another girl in the dorm the first night. The place is super clean which you notice as soon as you walk in. They even have a share box with little sweets which is a nice touch. The basement area is chilled out with computers available for research and a TV. Only minor thing was that I couldn't find enough hangers to dry my washing on the rooftop. Aside from that, I couldn't ask for much more!!

When we lying on this bed, there was some noises like this bed not secure. And when we moved, this noise effected another people in room. + We heard some kind of sound of water from other rooms since the water system right on our head without any covered. + The trash in toilet have problem, cannot automatic and we had to open by ourselves.

      The location is a bit far away from the Ximen MRT station (exit 6), you can use google map to get in. Some how, it is nice to stay. Although they don't provide breakfast, but you can get it nearby (turn right until the junction, then turn left. there's breakfast shop and it's cheap and tasty). Overall is ok, except the sound insulation system. In the early morning, when people busy check out, you can heard they bang the door loudly. Last but no least, if you tend to stay in this hostel, please lighten your luggage, because you need to carry it all the way via stairs, no lift at all!

      The place overall was clean. The room that we've booked was spacious enough. The vibes really caters to the younger ones since they no longer have reception service late in the evening. Too bad that you have to bring or buy your own towel but nevertheless the experience was great. It was really a value for money kind if deal.
