Clean and nice looking hostel, very friendly and helpful staff! The dorm rooms are a bit cramped but I didn't mind. The staff is so friendly and very willing to help with any questions you might have. Great experience, would recommend going there.

Stayed here for about 9 days. We booked a private suite room and it was superbly clean. Both hosts Min and Mia has been really helpful during our stay. The location is very accessible and easy to navigate around. Would come back again soon!
