I had a pleasant stay here. I think it really is a dorm, many of long-term-occupants there. So.. the receptionists aren't always there. You should contact them before you check in so they can prepare. Otherwise you'll stand up in front of the front door. -SAFE. The front door is always locked. Once you check in, you'll be given password... More

The cleanliness of the bath & toilet area during my previous stay makes me decide to return here. My first time staying at this hostel was 2 years ago. The dorms are now renovated & from what I read, there is a change of ownership. You can find capsule-type of accommodation at Pillow.Talk. Positive stuff to mention - toilet &... More

Warm friendly staff is the highlight of our stay in this hostel. Despite shared bedroom and bathroom, we were able to have a comfortable stay in this hostel. I Would recommend a shoe rack to place and organize our shoes so it wouldn't be crowded to look at. Good job Iku and Vicente!

The staff is what made this place great!!! They were always around to help or just hang out. Lots of laughs! Great location and the outdoor cafe across the street is open 24 hours which is great with flights coming in at all times. Prices are pretty good also. The a/c was really needed at night so that was a... More

Although the rooms are separated by curtains, it wasn't noisy and we could sleep well at night. The hostel wasn't fully booked during our stay there, hence we didn't have to wait to use the toilet. Most of the time, the communal area was also empty. The only downside was not to have A/C during the day, if we chose... More

The staff were the highlight of the place; very friendly and REAL, not artificial! Good location, quiet-time followed, which was fantastic because you can actually get some sleep. Will visit again! It was quite solid and has a good cafeteria to eat at across the road, as well as being close to Little India.
