Location was great, right next to beautiful canals and metro station. The hostel itself was a bit cold and dirty. Drains seemed to be clogged often. Showers and toilets in the same tiny cabin: everything was wet. Room key cards were deactivated about every single time you left the room. Staff was okay. Facilities were good, hairdryers and free toilet paper etc. Dorm room was comfortable, except beds were quite hard. Nothing too special to mention, overall stay was quite okay.
No locks on most lockers! For some reason every single time you leave the building your keycard gets deactivated. The building is not heated in the winter. It was freezing! The rooms have heat, but cleaning people like to turn it off and open your windows when you're away. Some of the toilets don't work and they never had TP. A lot of burnt out lights and clogged sinks. Most of the guests are Chinese families, including Grandma and Grandpa, babies and children. VERY LOUD STAY.
Staff were friendly and room was fine (although the first room we got, the windows didn't lock. However, staff had no problem changing us to a different room though). Only problem was that it 'offered' breakfast and food but the chef was never available to cook. You shouldn't advertise food available if it isn't actually available.
The hostel is located right next to one of the canals and is only a short bus ride from a couple of the main gardens. The Wifi did not work when I was there and the schedule for breakfast was not followed. The only secure place to keep valuables was the desk which did have a camera on it, but many of the storage bins in the rooms were missing latches.
