Only stayed 2 nights. The beds very fine. Shower and toilet was okay and tidy. Lockers were really appreciated. Lights in the main hallway are kept on at all times which was a bit distracting at night for sleeping and there are only curtains to separate the dorm sections. Not very private. I also found this hostel to be very noisy. They did have a kettle and a free water cooler which was nice. Location is fine because Chinatown station is very close by. It's OK for the price. Not the worst.


Dirty, loud, pillows were rock hard, very dark and dingy. Worst place we've stayed on our travels, luckily we were only here for a night!
