Location: Close to train station and china town. Fair walk into the centre of town, but can be accheived if your energetic. The hostel is also close to local drug dealer hang outs and the majority of the towns beggers. We didnt feel safe walking home at night.
Staff: Only talked to us because they had to. Not friendly at all. Provided false information which got us terribly lost. I asked for help with the computers and the staff member said she didnt know anything, and offered no other means of assistance. just rude.
Rooms: Comfortable beds. but there are thin blinds and no curtains, so the room is flooded with street lighting all night. Sound proofing is also poor so you can easily hear every demestic argument in the streets during the night, and in this neighborhood fights are common. Bathrooms were good.
