The hostel was close enough to the bus stations or subways. The mall was also within a 10 minute walking distance. The hostel had a party atmosphere, they would...

As for the enterance I arrived at night and it was hard to find and has no curb appeal whatsoever. But...

Matress are covered with plastic and they give new sheets and cover when you check in. However, pillow is not clean. There...

I chose this place because of the low price. The facilities reflected that, there was only one shower which occasionally did not give warm water, and the music in the common area was often loud.
