“Clean and convenience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

We've been stayed here two nights. The bed and bathroom were clean! The hostel located in good location. Easy to link to city and other places.

It's lucky our roommates were so nice. We had good nights there!

I stayed here for 2 nights. I called the morning before I arrived to book a spot and they had space available.

The hostel is really nice - nicest one I've been in. The rooms have ~10 beds (5 bunk bed units) with wooden frames and thick, comfy mattresses. Each room has a bathroom with a shower and a toilet, so you can have a private shower. Sharing the bathroom 10 ways when the hostel is full could be a problem, but when I was there only about 5 guests were sharing my room and I never had to wait for the bathroom. The room has aircon and fans, and even a balcony.

The main (living) room downstairs was really nice - it has a big area for hanging out with comfy lounges. It has a kitchen and free water, coffee and tea.

The staff couldn't have been better. They were super friendly and very helpful. I became good friends with one of them in the 2 days I was there. They told me where to go & helped me book a train and call a taxi. They let me store my luggage there all day on the day I checked out.

One note - if planning on staying on a Saturday night, be sure and book ahead! I would have stayed one more night but couldn't because I didn't plan ahead!

I just couldn't enjoy the experience more! Anson took us for food, gave us excellent trip advises and we had really nice talks! That was why I lived here for three times! It was cheap and nice.
