Having read some many bad reviews on this place, I would say my stay was generally nice. I booked the 4 female dorm, but I was offered a double room and had my own bed, which is bigger than those in the hostels. It locates in a quite residential block, and also convenient to go to supermarkets for shopping. It is better than my expectation, but I prefer staying at traditional hostel. However, if you do not have other choice, this place is acceptable.
This place is just ugly, dirty, no key to lock the room or your bagage. Do not stay there alone as a woman. That was the worst place I have ever stayed in.
I would not recommend staying in the "dorm" rooms. They are the bedrooms of the manager's suite, sharing their bathroom, kitchen and entrance. The room and the bathroom were not clean, prayed that the old dirty heater would run through the night as there was no central heating, curtains on the window looking out onto the parking lot were completely sheer so had no privacy at all. Most expensive room I had on my trip and was the least comfortable and secure.
