“A 6-star rated hostel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

This is a brand-new hostel with nice out-look and well designed interior. This 9 storey minihotel equipped with many hi-tech devices - motion sensitive lighting, central controlling swtich, door-key card. Free wifi in the room, fee international call (15 min), free internet in the lobby, Kitchen in the basement, free breakfast, laundry service. The 8 bed dormitory has its own bathroom, TV set, lockers, hairdryer. There are eventhough have 2 minifrige too! The room is very clean.

The receptionist is very polite, friendly and helpful. Hand-in the map and sightseeing info to me before check-in. The location of the hostel in excellent, convenient to many attractions.
I recommend to all the backpackers without hesitation.
