So, after booking online and I advance my friend and I were seperated, we had asked to be in a mixed dorm however one of us was out in all girls and the other in a mixed dorm. We said that would be ok for the first night although we were pretty annoyed and asked if it were possible for... More

This place is perhaps ur best bet when it comes to price, meeting other people, & location, arguably. THe only downfall of this place is the staff. Ive been here twice over a period of 6 months & the staff is always the same people, & therefore its safe to say they r related. The old Chinese guy who is... More

We stayed here for several nights and had no big issues. Apart from the lack of electricity plugs and the wifi was hit and miss sometimes, it was a good place to stay. Breakfast on the rooftop was amazing, cooked by an awesome lady! And the bar at night on the rooftop was definitely a good place to meet others... More

We got a private room with attached bathroom. We were not given blankets and when we requested them, they gave us of those from the airplaines. The bathroom was dirty and the flush was broken. The A/C only works from 6 pm. to 9 am. 'cause they argue if you're there as a tourist, you leave the whole day and... More

If you dont have so much money to spend (student like me), it is worth to go there. We (3 pax) rented a 3 pax-dorm for 3 days. The WiFi doesnt always work, you have to pay for the A/C, but a fan is provided (and really enough for the night). There are lockers but you have to pay (1... More

i spent around two nights at this hostel. well, actually the two things that special from this place are cheap and it's close to everywhere. then it's also easy to find foods or restaurant because there are a lot of restaurant and food street along the road near the hostel. Eventhough, most of them are chinese food. about the hostel... More

I stayed two unpleasant nights at this place on 5th and 6th August. The room was tiny, overpriced and damp - with a gross air conditioning hole in the roof which aluminium foil breathing awful air lightly into the dimly lit grey interior. Worst of all though - the person at the front desk (there are two, this one had... More
