Paid 45 renminbi per night 4 person dorm. Key deposit required. Price not far off a basic private hotel room. Nearby hostels 15-25 renminbi dorm room. Some air con, most not. I'd recommend it if on a budget but wanting good bathroom and clean rooms.
Decor and rooms clean and modern. Felt a little sterile but was quiet. Apart from the floors which made every footstep vibrate the floors and loud when heavy walkers passed by.
Overall a good clean modern hostel with prices above the rest. Apart from rooms no other amenities like other hostels ie rooftop, lounge areas. Basic but clean.
Bunk beds are king singles, good if you like space or are tall. Linen and towels clean and new. 4 person dorm room. Not grungy at all.
Three showers and three toilets for the floor with 40+ guests if full. Other floors for private rooms and areas may be different. Air con in rooms was great, cafe downstairs basic.
No real place to hang out unless you buy a drink at cafe. Hangout area is hallway really so talking etc disturbs rooms 3 feet away and hot during day.
Showers clean. Male cleaning staff - be warned bathrooms are open plan.
Frosted glass shower doors was a little embarrassing being a female traveller with non segregated bathroom. Hot water pressure fantastc .
Lockers for rooms are small if you have a large backpack more than a sports bag you aren't going to fit in them.
Location central to free bus, heritage area and historic attractions. Easy to find after arriving on ferry from butterworth. Opposite a cat cafe .
Less than 3 minutes from number 8 bus stop on free shuttle which picks up from ferry stop bus terminal 2. Get off stop 8 and walk back to 3 way intersection and walk down the laneway with subway.
One issue - Very noisy floors wooden with some carpet -every footstep was like an elephant passing by.
Rooms dont have windows this might make some people feel a little claustrophobic but the small number of people in rooms offset this.
Free bicycles for guests a great thing and reception staff speak very good english and very helpful. Cafe staff do not speak English.
