valueable,easy accomodation
Even the hostel not located at city center but that is near bus stop and small train station. That is easy accomodation. For staff not so friendly that depends on customer which country they came from that is unfair. Bathroom was good clean and enough space for bath. Bedroom was not so ventilate.

跟火車站很近. 過一條馬路就是
房間有點小, 放6張床之後行李太大都放不下, 而且房間裡面沒有插頭, 要叉電什麼的都要走到lobby那邊, 晚上那裡就聚集好多人, 要早去才可以霸到插頭用

리셉션이 24시간 운영이 아니라는게 불편, 중심지와는 좀 거리가 있음, 그외는 좋음
직원 친절, 깨끗한 객실, 키친 사용
잘만하다. 하지만 리셉션 운영이 불편하고 중심지와는 조금 거리가 있다. 화장실이 남녀공용이라 불편함. 약간 방이 추움. 키친 사용이 자유로워서 좋음.
