Japanese Style Room
Stayed 2 nights in June 2019

Great staff and facilities, but rooms can get really hot during summer nights.”

We really enjoyed our stay and happy about the service. We had the Japanese Style Room that looks great but unfortunately, we had difficulty sleeping and we were sweating at night, we asked if there was a way to control the air-conditioner but they said they can't do much about it as it's already centralized. It was really hot and not comfortable so I could imagine how hot it is for those in the dormitory type of rooms. Nonetheless, it was still worth the money. Just not as comfortable as I hoped for.

Great location, subway and buses are very close, walkable. Wi-Fi, clean sheets, good mattress, but you have to make your own bed. This can be improved. The girl at the reception is rude and insulting, unlike the Japanese culture. The guy there esp. During the day is simply amazing. They allow you to store luggage as well which is super convenient. Nice kitchen and common area.

What I really love about Shiori-Ann is her kitchen with full of equipment. The guests are also fun to talk with and I have an excellent Melbourne mate who is also a vegan like me. What I don't like about is the sound-proofing. Some guests are really heavy-footed but it's none of what the hostel could do. Maybe you should put a sign "light-footed, please" somewhere? And I don't know why I got bed bugs bites all of my body after 6 nights there huhu.
