The Beds are very bad, also the Pillow was in a state no one would use it. Upon complaining, the staff says, Y don't you take a private room. Don't stay here. It's very bad, I have stayed at all hostels in Clark quay, This is good for domestic workers. They have mentioned water free. Dam its the tap water, very bad.

Hostel in good location about a 5 min walk to clark quay. Hostel was very clean and dorm room was good, beds were new, sheets clean so overall good value for money. Breakfast was just toast. Staff weren't the best, as they didn't seem to care and weren't that friendly. Didn't help us much, and struggled to order us a taxi to get to the airport, but apart from that it was a nice hostel in a good location.


Not a place to stay if you come at night at time because you wouldn't be able to check in as the hostel doesn't allow any check in before 2 pm. Luckily, I could ask for an exception from the reception and she eventually let me in at around 11 pm, however I got to check out before 12 am at noon which I think doesn't worth it for 30 bucks.

Found the staff member who checked us in very unhelpful and quite rude. Did not seem interested in doing her job, preferring to browse Facebook and ignore us. The staff also moved another guest's belongings to accommodate us on our arrival (without ours or his knowledge). Later the guy came looking for his things. The dorm room was fine, nothing special. The showers smelled like urine slightly but were ok other than that. Not a great hostel, but you get what you pay for.


Very nice well located hostel..
