    真的如其他人所說的,地點好之外沒有什麼優點了 我朋友在旁邊訂了差不多價格的hostel,不管是整潔或房間大小明亮度都差非常多 整層樓只有一間廁所或浴室,而且還常常在維修 安全也很堪憂 總之根本不會比較省錢,去隔壁吧! Except location, there is nothing good to say for this hostel. Therebis only one bathroom for a floor, and the room is small and not clean. The price isn't too cheap to stay. Think about it!
