The hostel is really close to the subway, very convenient location. There's a fairly-nice convenience store just down the street, and street vendors nearby in the morning selling breakfast food. The walking directions left on the website aren't very easy to follow, but the address is correct, so I would just recommend putting the address into a smart phone or GPS. The mixed-group room is very cool, a large loft space with lots of beds, but it can be a bit hot in the summertime.


Average hostel. Dorms were always dirty, the aircon dripping water and the maids coming in and out of the room early in the morning or whenever they please. Ok to stay at, close enough to everything, if you mind a ten min walk to the metro. The best thing about the hostel is the bar next door.


Nice hostel. We arrived very late at night and were expected to make our own beds at 3 am in the pitch black, even though I had informed them of the timing.


Place is a little hard to find, and quite a distance from the subway. The rooms were clean though, and very spacious


the atmosphere is good; comfortable lobby area and friendly staff~~ but no restaurant nearby and must walk across the road for the chinese resta urant in a hotel


About 10+ minutes walk from the subway, it's a bit complicated to get there. 27-person dorm is nice and air-conditioned. But it's sometimes noisy depending on people you are living with. Toilets and shower rooms on the G/F (Room on 2/F) are clean but tiny. Public areas are perfect with some drink, but close at 12 am.


Hostel and staff very nice, but the beds gave me and my companion red rashes at different parts of our bodies.


This is a truly wonderful hostel. The staff are very kind, welcoming, and helpful, the space is beautiful and conducive both to quiet relaxation and meeting your fellow travelers, and the location is great. A model for other hostels to emulate.


Very nice and helpful staff, excellent location, also close to the subway, although maybe a bit hard to find for the first time.


group room for the evening very lovely. rabit running free, very cute, but a bit dirty. roof top terrace for moning perfect. room not very clean but ok for the price. public bathroom is better than those in room, because cleaned regularly. same applies for public toilet, totally ok, nice area, a bit hidden but wellknown by taxi drivers. metro walking distance 15-20 minutes. nice helpful statt, english speaking. charming atmosphere.


Not easy to find this hostel if u first time come here, a little far from metro, but nice big house and comfortable lobby


Large cozy common area, comfy rooms and decent warm showers. The hostel is located among some quiet backstreets but it's only a short walk to the 1912 bar area, cheap food and the subway.


The staff is great. The lobby is a great place to rest. And the hostel is globally a great place to stay. however, the double beds room i booked was located just over a bar. And the room was missing some lights and electric connections... still a nice place to stay, 5 minutes from metro station

Clean enough hostel, with really nice & helpful staff. Central location in a quiet area of town, very close to cheap eateries & a small supermarket. Buses close by. Metro is 15 minutes away. The dorm sleeps over 20 people but somehow it doesn't feel like it. The cafe/common area has a good social vibe & makes the hostel one I recommend. Although there's one major drawback: no own drinks/foods are allowed there - which really sucks. Especially as the drinks/foods on offer are totally overpriced!


Staff were friendly and helpful. Relaxed atmosphere in the communal lounge, beautiful decor. Laundry and drying facilities, large communal fridge, boiling water available. Bar next door on the right, convenience store 50 m down the road on the left. Close to public transport.


Would stay there again. Staff was really nice and helpful. :)
