Very friendly, relaxed and helpful staff. Rooftop terrace is great. Powerpoints near beds would be appreciated. Thanks for the great free coffee and letting me have a late breakfast!!

The staff were absolutely excellent. They are really knowledgeable, helpful and fun to talk to. The hostel is clean and because the rooms are away from the lounge area there isn't much noise at night.

One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. Not only was it clean and comfortable it had a lovely cosy atmosphere. I met some amazing people down in the lobby and in the shared dorm rooms. Everyone was always friendly and helpful. Also a great location situated near china Town and lots of shops and restaurants. Would definitely stay here again.

Perfectly reasonable hostel with good dorm rooms. Helpful staff who showed me the best places to visit during my short stay on a map but unable to help with onward travel booking which was a pain. Good breakfast and large communal area downstairs but because the wifi is limited to that area it is just full of people on the Internet. But still was able to find people to talk to over Breakfast!

I returned to the hostel for a night and had not booked a room. They were very helpful and let me choose my room. The staff is very friendly and the rooms are clean and comfortable. Great stay once again.

Great atmosphere, nice showers and linens. Not your typical dodgy hostel.

No WiFi outside the common room Top bunks are out of luck for if you want to charge anything. Staff and hostel are laid back. No real complaints.

The staff were excellent, the room was clean and the location was absolutely perfect - very close to Chinatown and to the metro station. Couldn't ask for more than that. The 24 hour reception is a big bonus too as I had to check in very late (around 2am) after a flight. Thanks guys!
