Stayed 1 night in September 2016
Besides having excellent location, the following cons of the place: 1) Staff came into the room early in the morning without knocking 3 consecutive times during our stay. 2) the common kitchen was messy and dirty 3) the mattress was too soft 4) room was cold with small heater machine

Nice place to stay
Receptionists could have been friendlier. Free pancakes in the morning were great, you have to wait quite some time though. Free dinner was okey. You get something for your money. Wilson car park is right behind the house, which is expensive though. Overall it has been a nice stay there and we would come back.

Impolite staffs.
Foods they provided for dinner are good.
Bit far from Oriental bay and close to town. The staffs at the reception are not kind and helpful. Even the day is New Year's Day I said" Happy new year" but no body answer and reply at all. Absolutely ignored me. Even always gave an impolite reply. Need them to be trained how to treat and welcome traveler they stay with your backpackers.
