Great value for money; friendly, efficient staff; excellent location. Clean, attractive, well-designed rooms. Provided more facilities than I expected. Even though my grandson & I were probably well outside the age range of the most common travellers, we felt very comfortable using all the facilities.

This YHA has very helpful and pleasant reception staff, it is very clean and comfortable with good sized rooms. The kitchens and dining area are spacious and well designed. A good place for those on a budget.

Rooms are awesome here, no complaints there. Showers are super tiny with only one hook / nowhere to hang things. The shower curtains are close so it sticks to your legs a lot and are also too small so water leaks everywhere if you're not careful like someone who flooded the room before me. Laundry is almost non existent here...

Great view of Skytower at night. The rooms and amenities are immaculate and kept very clean. I stayed in a 4 bed female dorm with ensuite and it...

When I checked out in the morning, I asked where I could leave my luggage as I had an evening flight. I was informed that I would have to pay for a locker to store...

I was a little walk up the hill, but once we were there it was like coming home. People were friendly. Everything was easy to get to. The staff was able to help better than a tour guide. I have told everyone I meet.

The room we had was an ensuite double. It was perfectly clean and looked brand new. A nice view of the sky tower. I loved the coffee and plunger; and felt very safe and comfortable. I think the price was reasonable. The location of the hostel was great near to the city centre and restaurants etc. Highly recommended. Well done...

They have a very good location in the city area. Our room comes with ensuite bathroom, it's clean and well-equipped. Wifi is strong at each floor.

We stayed here after flying from the UK via Singapore. We arrived in the early hours of the morning but there was no problem getting access to the hostel and checking in. While it was secure there was someone on the nightshift keeping an eye out. We stayed in a queen room with en suite which was very comfortable. It...
