    Excellent location and that's it. "Reception" = counter of the convenience store. They had no real idea of my booking and were fairly uninterested in my arrival. Only security is a key coded gate. Front door = open with no lock/key. Room door = open with no lock/key. No lockers - I carried my valuables on me 24/7 (I have never felt it necessary to do this before at any other hostel). Bathroom was pretty horrid - no evidence of it ever having been cleaned. Kitchen was passable. Stay elsewhere.
