The location of the hostel is ok but there are no power sockets in the rooms which is quite uncomfortable. Also, there's no wifi in the rooms. Just in the lobby. THat's also quite bad. Nowadays a wifi repeater is 20 USD, they could afford buying one. The WIFI didn't work in a few ocations,

Investigation done. There are plenty of power sockets in the common room. Power extensions is reduced in dormitories as it is a fire hazard. It is intended for wifi to work in common room so that others in the dormitories will not be disturbed. Wifi needs to be restarted when mobile devices do not retire their ip properly. Guest was explained about free fitness centre use and there's pool table, dvds, games.


Damn good hostel. Staff great, facilities excellent and only short walk from public transport. 5 stars.


everything is good, don't expect it much as this very affordable, just unsatisfied with air conditional that only will function after 6pm and shut down in 11am in the morning.
