Really cool place to spend a couple days. Location is close to great street food. Especially seafood. Staff is interesting, and fun to chat with. Real perk is the rooftop bar area, although it closes a bit early at midnight. Check this place out
there are a lot of dags. the toile and shower-room are dirty... but there are kind staff..
The facilities are fair for the price you pay for a stay, although it would have been nice if warm water for the showers were available during the entire day and not just the early morning. I would, however, definitely recommend this hostel just for the unbeatable location and view, and the atmosphere among the fellow young (mostly Chinese) travellers, which is great!
Pros: 1. Staff was helpful and friendly. 2. The restaurant on the top floor was delicious and had a cool atmosphere. 3. Price. Cons: 1. Definitely not the best location. Near a bus stop but still up a hill and out of the way from most food or tourist options. 2. Not the cleanest. Especially the bathrooms should be cleaned at least once between the night time rush and 8am. Not unbearable but definitely not a pristine hostel.
Nice hostel,helpful reception,fantastic bar,I'm loving it

Awesome location at top of the town on a hill. The house was quite fancy. Bathrooms in the dorm rooms were en suite. Good: Huge lockers for each bed with electronic keys. Not so ideal: no individual lights for the beds.
