We would give this place five stars only for the awfully unfriendly welcome by the cantankerous sarcastic ex-pat Brit running this place.
If you were writing a script for a film for a grumpy hotel receptionist you couldn’t have come up with anything as unfriendly as this guy.
That aside, everything else is superb. The hostel is very clean, well kept and incredibly good value in a very convenient location in Chinatown just a minute walk from the river and street market. The WIFI is excellent – the thin walls do help.
One concern would be if you get people drinking or socialising very late/early you’ll wake straight away as the walls are really thin. The benefit of thin walls is excellent WIFI reception though! Just bring ear plugs!
The grumpy guy will organise a taxi when you’re leaving.
Overall, highly recommended just ignore the attitude of the guy running the place.
