Although the 2nd room they gave me was much better, with fast wifi, minimal noise, and a working aircon. They should have the other rooms renovated, the first room I got was the absolute worst.. I could hear the KTV from outside and noises from the other side of the wall which was the front desk. Very poor wifi connection and cell network. The got aircon broken in about a week from checking in which leaked water unto my bed. The ceiling had big holes on it and there were scratching noises. Pest control issues. No heads up on the limited water consumption, I was only informed upon check-in, which is misleading. It was not posted when I booked the room online nor was it emailed to me.

The Capsule beds are really nice. WiFi was good and available everywhere. The bathrooms are not so good, very old, no intimacy, no water for the shower on the evening (and when I was there, no water in the afternoon neither...but fortunately they let me shower in another hotel). The AC in the dormitory was so so cold! And we couldn't change it! And if you want a blanket you have to pay....

Review collected in partnership with this hotel
If hygiene is important to you, I strongly advise you not to book this hostel. There is no running water fron 7 pm to 4 am. The toilets become extremely dirty at night because of the absence of water. They should have solved this problem a long time ago. What if I have a call of nature at night and I cannot flush the toilet!? Did the owners consider this? I know its a cheap hotel, but its not an excuse not to provide good basic services such as the availability of water all day.
