Good stay
Clean, very friendly helpful staff. Great location near city and train station. Not very cozy/laid out to be social would be my only criticism- eg sofas in rows makes it feel quite anonymous

Ok if you're on a budget
I requested for a female dormitory. Air conditioner wasn't really working and the room is quite stuffy. As one girl was sick in the room, the other girls decide not to turn on the air conditioner without opening the window. =( I guess this is what you get when you're sharing a room. Bathroom water pressure on the same floor wasn't strong, can't even was my hair properly with such low water pressure.
