Distinctly unfriendly staff for the most part. They know they're in a good location, and have backpacker friendly stuff like a bar etc, so I feel like complacency has set in so they don't worry about customer service, clean bathrooms, ladders for their bunk beds etc. they shouldn't be as there are better, cheaper options on the same street...


- Wifi did not work - Unmotivated staff at the reception - Overall poor atmosphere

Ok place for one night. Staff in reception were not very friendly and we got the impression that se was annoyed by having to show us to the room and interupting her internet surfing. Very noisy bar in the front. Didn't finish until four am. Only one shared toilet and one shower that was working. The good thing about the place was the restaurant and the chef working there. Exelent food and very nice chef.


Ok place if you have nowhere else to stay. Good location but damp and mouldy rooms and bathrooms.

夜バスターミナルに着いて歩いて行きました。夜道に街灯がなく歩きにくいです。到着後、夕食を作ろうとしたらキッチンの流し台に使用後の鍋や皿がいっぱいでとても汚く、キッチンの利用を断念しました。 wifiは有料です。 ドミのベットは大きくて寝やすく蚊帳も付いてます。 部屋に貴重品ボックスが無く、女性ドミのロッカーを使用できるそうですが、個々のロッカーでは無いので安全面に欠けます。 翌日、すぐ近くのルサカバッグパッカーズに移りました。
