I find the hostel trying too hard to impress with its superficial embellishments. Although designed to have a very ecollectic urban indie-style interior from the selection of posters on the wall to its furniture, I find it very lacking in terms of convenience, location, and security. With no elevator, it can be difficult to carry one's luggage upstairs, especially if it's huge suitcase. Wifi is only available on the reception floor(2nd floor), and not in the other rooms upstairs from there. I'm not sure if it's cost-cutting measure. I find security a little lacking since my single room is equipped with a pair of sliding doors and only a very simple locking mechanism. On top of that, anyone can entrance the hostel and bypass the reception; as a result, anyone can walk in and out. The location itself doesn't have much to offer since it is far out from where most the things are happening.
