Bed was dusty. The divider between female dorm and mixed dorm was just a piece of curtain. The atmosphere was scary. Noises from KTV downstairs at night. Cant wait to get out of the dorm from the 1st night. Wanted to stay for 3 nights but checkout after the 1st night.


Approachable staff. They attend to your needs immediately. Near everything - souvenir shops, restaurants, shopping centers, etc.

Just like what others commented. It doesn't really look like a youth hostel. People there are all lock-and-seal, it is hard to find anyone gathering in common area. Even though, It is still very full probably because of the attracting price. So, it is definitely a good choose if budget is your concern.
