I cannot fault this hostel for location, it's a 5 Minuit walk from all the big shopping centres eg time square and pavilion. However the hostel bookers website claims there's tea and coffee facilities and a TV in every room, we had neither. We even swapped rooms and only got a kettle! The a horrible smell without and damp everywhere,... More

Nothing nice about this place other than the location. From the moment we entered this guesthouse, I feel like something wrong somewhere. 1st, they have no preparation or idea about our booking. And keep asking me, insisted that I show my booking through my phone although my phone was run out of battery. 2nd, from the entrace to the room,... More

I stay here a few years ago. It was clean and well run. Well what a difference a few years make. I arrived to be greeted by a Bangladeshi who was useless. He took 20 minutes to check me in. The first room he gave me had the safe alarm going and the water didn't work. I got a room... More

We booked the 'superior double' & upon arrival were told there were no superior double rooms left so they would be putting us in a normal double room.. Which we didn't really mind until they tried to charge us the same price as the superior. The receptionist was awfully rude when we kindly pointed out her 'mistake'. We asked to... More

I understand that accommodations in larger cities can be a bit more expensive and that location is a major factor, but I feel that this place was a bit overpriced. I slept well and enjoyed the location, but the room smelled, there were cockroaches scattering upon entering, and the comforter on the bed seemed a bit grimy. I felt like... More

It's no 5 star hotel, you pay what you get. Small rooms, some without window, with AC and some with attached bathroom. It's a hotel you book to visit the city, not to enjoy your hotelroom. Rooms are not much bigger than the bed. Beds are good, clean and soft. The shower is good, toiletis clean, fridge works well andis... More
