No control over ac in dorm and only comes on for a half hour every hour. Definitely not enough. Room was way too hot to sleep. Also there is only one toilet and shower for the whole hostel. Not very social and quite small, wouldn't stay more than a night or two.

I'm sorry for the inconvenience. So I gave you 1 night for free. The rule of AC is for a half hour every hour on July and Aug, it depends on weather on June. But as you know I turned on the AC for whole night while you were staying. Thank you for your review.


A little interesting to find, the JA is very cosy inside. Oh and if you love bagels, this is the place for you, keep the breadbin stocked ;)
